When the World Realized Thrilly's Swing was an Artform
My roommate at the time, Neil from the videos Average to Absolute Savage, was without a shadow of a doubt the worst soft-toss thrower in the history of the universe of all-time ever. I remember watching the video back while editing it and laughing at how legitimately pissed I was that he could not toss a ball on a line at my front hip. I remember the line with 100% seriousness, "Pretend you're an athlete and hit my hip right here." He was tossing with arc like it was over 50 slow pitch softball - which... don't get me wrong, I'd hit .975 playing - it just wasn't what I was going for with the video.
I actually went to Maine for the 4th of July holiday with the "Sure Thing" Mark Shurman and his family right after shooting it. Shurman could share some hilarious stories about how bad I was with women that weekend. I had to edit the video in the vacation condo. I sifted through 15 minutes of awful footage and put together my best 1-minute and 38 seconds to the MLB on Fox Theme. I thought for sure the video sucked huge balls. As of today, it has 315K+ views on YouTube and is my second most popular YouTube video. Four years later, I'm married with a kid and Shurman is going to be married in November. It's crazy how fast the time goes.
Since then, I've shot 5+ "Smashing Smoke" videos which will be uploaded on Thursdays on my #TBT: Throwback Thrilly blog.

This program is huge for Absolute Savage Inc. We are looking to expand to hire a full-time producer, sales team and freelance bloggers. We want to make ABSOLUTE SAVAGE STUDIOS a platform for up-and-coming entertainers to produce hilarious content and make a name for themselves to allow them to take their career to the next level. To qualify for funding, we need to hit $120,000k of revenue in our first year. Outside of video sponsorships from brands, this program will be the biggest key. We are on target. But, this program will be instrumental in allowing us to get there. If you want to see Thrillride pump out daily content, you can support us by signing up for the T-SHIRT OF THE MONTH CLUB today!!!
I hope you enjoyed the video. The best is yet to come, baby!!!
