Supreme's "Candyland" Premiere Photos

The night before the Supreme store opening in San Francisco, Strobeck and his merry band of collaborators showed off their newest video, Candyland, to a modest gathering of select skaters. Down in the Mission at a bar called the Make Out Room, the usual cast of Supreme’s cinematic universe mingled with their newest featured players, a crowd of GXers and a hundred or so SF locals. Despite the big business glow around the global skate fashion brand, the whole thing stayed true to any good skate premiere—skaters got hyped, fireworks were lit off in the street, cops were called and many, many faces were zoomed into. Here are some photos to show what it looks like when your favorite skaters get packed into a disco bar dance room —Ted Schmitz

Supreme Candyland Premiere 2 750pxThe attending skaters listened to the marquee and displayed much public affection for Candyland’s cast at the Make Out Room. Also, no mention of the video on the marquee is kind of a power move

Supreme Candyland Premiere 10 750pxI heard it was Cher Autumn’s—aka Cher Strauberry on Instagram—first video premiere, which she also just so happened to be in. It was rad to hear one of the loudest cheers of the night for her backside heel at EMB

 

Supreme Candyland Premiere 11 750pxI’m just going to leave this here in case they feel like making a shirt out of it and letting me skim some royalties

 

Supreme Candyland Premiere 13 750pxIt says it right there on the front of Sage Elsesser’s sweatshirt, “Thank you Supreme for everything.” How’s that for some wholesome PDA?

 

Supreme Candyland Premiere 14 750pxWilliam Strobeck, legitimizer of the super-close-up-face-before-trick filming style warned me not to write this caption like that

 

Supreme Candyland Premiere 15 750pxWhat kind of Make Out Room would it be without a disco ball and, like, 300 lbs. of beads and tinsel?

Supreme Candyland Premiere 18 750pxWhat’s not shown is that everyone in the room had this exact same phone case.
