I got in touch with the makers of the films who had this to say:
“We conceived this video as a love letter to cool things, ie. Skateboarding and doggies.
We shot in the LA area with a cast of skaters/filmmakers. Sometimes we just gave them the camera so they could film each other riding on our functioning dog skateboards and rollerskates, which were modelled after our pets and our friends’ pets.
If you could ride around on your dog that would be awesome. It sounds stupid, but we wanted to make this badass, epic, joyful- and only a little stupid.
In case we weren’t clear, it’s not real. God we hope no one tries this- that would be superr duper stupid.”
