Weapon of choice

Post by mentor » 29 Mar 2013 07:26

After 100+ footbag productions during the last decade, I decided to retire a couple of month ago.

This vid was mainly pruduced because I found some unused footage shot by Nis and Jeff. Both have so few contacts because of the poor footbag that I couldn't include any their runs in this video. It was apparently a sample from a Pakistanian footbag producer. Milan was wearing running shoes because he thought he was visiting Nis at his work place. Keep this in mind when you see Milan in action. Please don't share this video due to its sensitive location.

Thx for all your support and comments during the years. It has been a pleasure serving you.

Well, I guess the quality of the bag and shoe choice excuse Milan from his absolutely terrible play. That video was damn near unwatchable. :roll:

I'm just gonna go cry in a corner now while trying to believe I'm good at this game.

Mads is definitely a good choice for hall of fame, once he get's to the 15 year mark. It's 15 years right?

Great video! Super secret and important location. I miss Milan in Copenhagen.

Thx for the comments guys.

Anssi my decision is not based on my age and you are right, I'm only 42.

Asmus I have been in this sport since you were born and I'm already famous so don't put me in a hall please.

Write me if you want to see this video and ill send you a password. Apparently the video has been embedded even though I asked you guys not to do it.

Awwww.
Such a SUPER sad news for footbag.
I remember being SO excited everytime i saw you posted a video. I knew, even before opening the file, it would be great.
Thank you very much for everything you produced. I saw some of them hundreds time and i had a lot of fun to do so!

For real, your videos have always been the best. You always capture a fun vibe, great shots, great music, and footage of some of the top players in the game. I am def sad that you will not be making anymore vids. Thank you for all the effort you have put into making our sport cool. Also for sharing such high quality footbag footage for the internet. U the man

Really sad to see you go. Your videos were absolutely top notch in every way and I will miss seeing new ones. Perhaps one parting request if I may (if it doesn't already exist)? Could you post a compilation of links to your videos over the years, I'd love to go back through if only to reminisce. Best of luck with wherever you take your talent next.

This was great -- so good, Mads.
I wish it was easier to watch though. I'm scared to close this tab because I don't want to have to look up the password every time I watch. Could a download be made available on Vimeo?

I've always been a fan of playing in unusual places, but I think this takes the cake. I was surprised to see the kind of stuff Milan was hitting with what seems to be the most amazing crappy bag ever. I think I'll keep the password on file, so that I can watch it a few more times.

Thank you Mads, for this video and all the others you've made. Like everyone else has already said, they've always been great! I'd like to know how much time each video takes for you to edit? They often seem very detailed and look like a lot of effort went into them.

I'd like the password too, if it's not too much trouble. I've been a fan of your filming since forever. Sad to hear you've retired. I'd love to see your last masterpeice. Good luck with the rest of your life.
