Spike Jonze-directed skate video trailer

Stunning use of M83’s “Lower Your Eyelids to Die With the Sun’ in Spike Jonze’s forthcoming skate video “Lakai Fully Flared”.

The “Fully Flared” skate video is four years in the making with a cast of 30 skaters and is co-directed by Jonze, Ty Evans and Cory Weincheque. This intro video marries M83’s slow-moving track with exploding concrete and fake walls trickery.

The soundtrack also includes Arcade Fire, Calexico, Bad Brains, Flaming Lips, David Bowie, Public Enemy, Band of Horses, Three 6 Mafia, UNKLE and Echo & the Bunnymen.

More videos at the Lakai site.
