The-only-skater-that-corporate-America-will-do-business-with-aside-from-Sean-White… Paul Rodriguez hooked up with Mountain Dew and 35 different skate shops across the country to all contribute to the Mountain Dew Green Label Art: (Skate) Shop Series contest. Over a million votes were cast and the winning shop, Street Science (based in St. Tracy, CA) won $10K, got 15 minutes of fame, and their can is going to be used all over the country. Honestly, I think all these cans are ill and they should just produce them all. Granted, my (limited) business sense tells me that the manufacturing costs of setting up 35 different can-prints probably isn’t the most profitable course of action. Regardless, props to Mountain Dew for getting involved with local shops and doing some things against the grain of the aforementioned standard corporate America practices.
ColorWare does some dope stuff for your electronics, honestly this could be an extremely useful one as well. I don’t have an iPad nor any other Apple products. I can’t lie though, I want them all. I’ll also take all the accessories that go along with them. You can grab these nifty little grip cases here.
