New Balance went back to basics with a new drop of MT 580 trainers. The film features one of Hong Kong’s famous neon sign makers and is beautiful to watch. The MT 580 was originally designed for the Japanese market, but has proved an enduring popular design with sneaker heads around the world. So it makes sense that New Balance do a new MT 580 drop referencing a major Asian market like Hong Kong. You can see the video here.

The cast of Sesame Street performs the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony classic, “Tha Crossroads” – amazing video mash-up. Sesame Street is no stranger to music and the swaying motions of many of its hand operated puppets works really well with this video. It has been beautifully put together. How much Sesame Street did they have to sit through in order to come up with the rushes that they then cut with the music?

Looking forward to see how this True Skin short film pans out as a series for Amazon Prime. Amazing looking cyberpunk as neon futurism
