A Recap of Supreme’s First Skate Film In Almost 20 Years

The cherry finally gets popped.

Whatever the fuck people speculate about Supreme, the buck stops here. Last night the box logo boys premiered “Cherry” by William Strobeck, their first video since 1995’s “A Love Supreme” by Thomas Campbell, and man was it good!

I couldn’t tell you what it was exactly, but there was magic, allure even. Maybe it was the Cypress Hill, Jane’s Addiction, The Cure, INXS, Raekwon-laden score (we’ll probably do a whole separate post on that alone), or director William Strobeck’s willingness to peer into the new generation of talented, limitless, un-wasted skate youth – or perhaps the combination of established riders like Rieder, Dill, Olson, Gonzales, Anderson, Koston and a slew of special guests, all making appearances and mind-blowingly sandwiching together a 20+ year legacy of skateboard counter culture?

It’s too much. Way too much to condense into a single post, so we won’t. But what we will do is show you the recap of “Cherry’s” premiere at East Village Cinema and afterparty at the Lower East Side’s infamous Pyramid Club (yeah, do your research).

And if you weren’t there, don’t fret, as the DVD will release at Supreme’s NY and LA stores this Thursday, March 20th and be available on iTunes come March 27th.
