As you may have already known, Haroshi has made an impression on the art world in recent years for his recycled skateboard sculptures.

This past Friday the 13th, bad luck was celebrated at Neck Face’s Simply The Worst opening at New Image Gallery in Los Angeles, Calif. Art collectors, graffiti enthusiasts, and the elite of skateboarding showed up to support Neckface.

Levi's and Nike gave them the opportunity to take this video short into their own hands, and the result is something Hollywood production companies with million dollar budgets could only dream of making. Chalk another one up for the skaters.

And, because we are dealing with a Leica, its a bit on the classy side.
