Alright, so to break it down real quick, It’ll be a little bit weird If I’m sitting here interviewing myself for this article. To switch things up a bit, I’m going to write this as more of an essay-style blog, and we’ll see if it works out as I’ve planned it. - deputybool
"First of all, I still can't wrap my head around the whole concept of myself having a signature wheel. It still seems like a dream, but firstly I'd like to thank North for the opportunity I've been given. I gave my wheels the name 'Onterrible', just because it's a running joke I have with the homies about the weather we get up here, but at the end of the day I love Toronto and Ontario with every bone in my body, Onterrible's home to me. I wanted this part to feature as much of Toronto as I possibly could, and really give a good example of what this place has to offer, in terms of spots, scenery and overall experience. With the help of Mitch Tranmer behind the lens, I think we captured that pretty well, other homies that helped filmed deserve their credit too, Jacob Bruno, Cameron McRobbie, Devin Morgan and Cameron Crook. I love y'all, thank you for sticking it out with me for all those hours. As some people might know, I'm a big fan of a good mosh pit too, So if this video was really going to showcase what Toronto is to me, I felt using a PUP song would only be right. I've been to countless of their shows, and some of the photos at the beginning are from those. There's a reason it's my favourite band & the only thing missing here would be me belting each and every lyric, but we'll save that for another time haha.For the colourway of my wheels I wanted something that I would love to ride on any setup, I’m a big fan of contrasting colours, and something as simple as white and black seemed like a no-brainer. My griptape is already hot pink after all, so y’all are lucky I didn’t go through with that idea. The graphic features the beautiful Toronto skyline taken from the island, and some subtle top graphics, including the North logo, the HotSoup logo, and finally the center maple leaf from the Trynyty logo. Big shoutouts to Sneeth for compiling all of my annoying ideas into the final graphic for this wheel. Hope you guys like what the finished product turned out to be.
To cap it all off, I think I want to thank everyone who has ever supported me in one way or another. Whether it be a quick follow, or a video view, I still can't believe people take the time out of their day to watch me do what I do. For the longest time, this has been a dream, and with the help of y'all it's finally reality, so thank you. Thank you North - Thank you Trynyty - Thank you 1-800-Hotsoup"
