adidas "Away Days" Premiere Photos

Last night in LA, adidas threw one of the biggest premiers I’ve ever seen for their new video Away Days. The house was packed with skateboarding's greats—everyone came out to support their striped friends! The video was epic—all thriller, no filler. Definitely the kind of video that makes you want to go skate. Go watch it as soon as you can! —David Broach
