Hawk partnered with Liquid Death to create the limited-edition skateboards. The boards were infused with Hawk’s blood and quickly sold out after being offered for $ 500-a-pop.
“はい, there is actually @tonyhawk’s real blood in these skateboards. はい, we sterilized it first. Own your very own piece of the Birdman today. But act fast! There are only 100 そのうちの,” the water company wrote in a tweet.
“Although it could arguably make the world a better place, never ever use these boards to make clones of Tony Hawk,” the company added.
Hawk told TMZスポーツ he had recently become an ambassador for the water company.
“I am deeply thankful to have a connection with my fans, and I appreciate how Liquid Death connects with theirs. This collaboration is taking those connections to a new level, as I have literally put my blood into these decks,” 彼が追加した. “And I take pride in knowing that organizations fighting plastic pollution and creating skate parks worldwide will be supported through our efforts.”
The memorabilia went viral earlier in the week, much to the chagrin of Lil Nas X.
The young rapper was demonized and hit with a lawsuit for his “Satan shoes” 今年の初め. He wondered why Hawk’s blood board was OK when his blood shoes were not.
“now that tony hawk has released skateboards with his blood painted on them, and there was no public outrage, are y’all ready to admit y’all were never actually upset over the blood in the shoes? and maybe u were mad for some other reason?” he tweeted Wednesday.
