This week’s time travel arrives on Friday, rather than Tuesday. Hey, navigating this space-time continuum thing ain’t no cakewalk and sometimes you’ll end up not quite where you want to. Oh well, at least you can enjoy Eero Ettala’s groundbreaking part from MDP’s Follow Me Around.
This has surely got to go down as one of the greatest movie parts of all time. Sure, Eero had had good parts before this but his part in MDP’s Follow Me Around was something else. From mini-shred, to solid-sized park wedges, to heavy backcountry action and gnarly urban, Eero crushed it all and cemented his reputation as one of the finest all-round riders of his or any generation.
The fact that he signed off with the first ever double backside rodeo 1080 was the icing on the cake, the tune was unexpected but worked perfect, and he even bagged so many bangers that season that MDP were able to cut together a fully legit B-roll part that made it into the DVD extras. If you don’t own this movie it’s worth hunting a copy down on eBay for Eero’s part alone…
