Role Model Productions Teaser


From the fine folks who brought snowboarding such gems as "Bad Ideas," "When In Doubt, Lay It Out!" and "Pumped 2B Stoked," "Turnin' and Burnin'" comes the latest from Role Model Productions, "Think Positive."

If you have yet to familiarize yourself with the self-described diplomats of Breckenridge, the Role Model crew describe their philosophy and the company they keep like so: "After the realization that they weren't willing to do anything else, a handful of friends sat down. They decided then that rather than making millions of dollars running their parents' modeling agency and rubbing sunscreen all over hot Brazilian models all year, they would follow the dream of being broke, tired, hungry, getting harassed by police, and freezing to death while being hungover; all while filming snowboarding. Role Model Productions consists of the kids that once threw up on the school bus. Farted in the movie theaters and blamed it on their girlfriends. They would look good if they only lost a few pounds. They are usually picked last to be on any sort of team. They are either outdated or way ahead of the times. They are proud of their parents and they are almost ready most of the time. But when all is said and done they are Role Models."

And that pretty much sums it up.
