Following the controversial decision from rapper Lil Nas X to sell shoes with his own blood in them, Tony Hawk has partnered with canned water company Liquid Death to sell 500 limited edition skateboards that have paint mixed with the Birdman’s blood.
I haven’t seen the public outrage just yet, but I’m sure the religious zealots are having an existential meltdown that a sinful skateboarder is selling a board painted with his own hellish blood.
I’m starting to wonder if this is going to be a new marketing scheme for all kind of products in the future. Will I be able to buy a snowboard painted with the Flying Tomato’s blood? How about gloves stitched with Lindsey Vonn’s hair? Or how about a jacket stuffed with down feathers from Bode Miller’s house’s pillows? Where does the madness end? 😆
The boards are already sold out. No surprise there. Some clout chasers probably saw the video title and purchased one before even watching the video. What a time to be alive.
