Please Enjoy Jim Tews Showing What (Really) Real Life Tony Hawk Pro Skater Looks Like

The remastering of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 & 2 has been one of the recent saving graces in terms of filling the days while still stuck in quarantine/lockdown. It’s also a great reminder of how ridiculous you can get on a skateboard when in a video game, even more insane than every pro skater that has ever lived.

Certainly, it’s not representative of what a good percentage of people who enjoy skateboarding as a hobby look like when they’re trying to put together trick combos or find and clear those secret gaps.

Thanks to the hilarious Jim Tews, you can see a more realistic version of a not-so-pro skater would be like in Tony Hawk Pro Skater. Please, please enjoy it on IG here.

So here I am, doing everything I can Holding on to what I am Pretending I'm a superman I'm trying to keep, the ground on my feet Seems the world is falling down around me The night's are long, I'm singing this song Trying to make the answer's more a maybe And I'm so confused, about what to do Sometimes I want to throw it all away So here I am, growing older all the time, Looking older all the time, Feeling younger in my mind So here I am, doing everything I can Holding on to what I have Pretending I'm a superman I'm trying to sleep, I lost count of sheep, My mind is racing faster every minute What could I do more, Yeah, I'm really not sure I don't want to run in circles but I can't quit And I'm so confused I've got a lot to do Sometimes I want to throw it all away Controlling everything inside Feeling weak I don't feel right Telling me I have to change Telling me to act my age But if all that I can do Is to sit and watch time go Then I'll have to say goodbye And I'll be sure to watch time fly, to watch it fly-hy-hy So here I am, Growing older all the time, Looking older all the time, Feeling younger in my mind Here I am, doing everything I can Holding on to what I am, Pretending I'm a superman 📸 @huyhasbeen
