This is one of those videos that will go down in SK8 history as a must-have. Incredible skating mixed with some cool photography & special effects and humor. It features members of the Girl and Chocolate teams along with some cool cameos.

Yeah Right! was released in memory of Keenan Milton (8/4/74 - 7/5/01), a talented fallen skater who was an inspiration to extreme sports athletes worldwide. The film features a montage and tribute narrated by one of Milton's close friends.

The skating kills, so lets take a look at the special effects - an area neglected by most directors. The Pink Skateboard segment features a number of riders passing off a pink skate after doing a trick. Sometimes it was tossed from rider to rider, other times the pass-off was incorporated directly into the next rider's trick. The filming of these pass-offs was flawless and made for a very engaging segment. It featured cameos by Mike Blabac, Greg Hunt, Lance Mountain, Nate Sherwood, Tony Trujillo and Anthony Van Engelen.

As if that weren't enough, they also did a "green skateboard" segment in which all the riders have skateboards that were sprayed green - the magical Hollywood color for removing unwanted elements. In post, the skateboards were removed from the scenes making the riders appear floating on air. From ollies to handrails, the effect was wild. Part of the bonus footage shows them skating on the green boards prior to editing them out. Touches like this make Yeah Right stand out among sk8 videos.

Owen Wilson... um yeah. What the hell is he doing in a sk8 video? For one, a cameo. So, I'm watching Yeah Right and there's this scene by the trunk of a car by which a bunch of skaters are talking trash. The biggest mouth comes from a guy who talks the talk and then grinds a handrail. Allegedly, it's Hollywood actor Owen Wilson. If I were to guess, I'd say a stunt double jumped in on this scene, but we're led to believe that his cool-factor extends to being an accomplished skateboarder. The reality is Eric Koston doubles for him, although Wilson says he skates... but not that well.
