In the early times of American cinema, silence was a technical necessity. It wasn't until after the first World War when audiences could finally marvel at synchronized sound, with the release of The Jazz Singer in 1927.

Fast-forward to Ben Stephenson's sponsor me clip in 2008. Although it's been 81 years since the advent of sound in film, this two-and-a-half minute short suffers from many of the same problems early 20th century filmmakers struggled with: sketchy landings, garbage can kickflips, that one indoor park you and your friends hate, and cottage cheese.

Contrary to Depeche Mode's recommendations, I will not enjoy this silence. I'll smack a free pair of Emerica shoes on Ben's desk to promote volume normalization. Come on Ben, step it up!--Foxxyz

  26. I liked the video, keep skating, just have fun, being sponsored is a privilege. I would love being sponsored and getting free shit, but it hasn't worked out for me yet. Hope that you keep taking that skating and the sick tricks you had and get somewhere with it, some where fun, like where you first were when you first picked up a board, haha, I'm gonna stop there, haha
