How did the skateboarder, snowboarder, and a surfer cross the road? They star in an episode of Carpool Karaoke, of course!
Tony Hawk, Kelly Slater, and Shaun White figure out they have more in common than just their respective “boarding” sports while hitching a ride together— or did they? With their opening song of “My Sharona” by The Knack, the group seemed as if they were as in sync as they could be! But, as they say, nothing lasts forever.
Shaun shocked both Tony and Kelly with his announcement that he didn’t know the lyrics to Pearl Jam’s “Alive”.
Tony explained, “You can’t sing along to Pearl Jam without really trying to sing like [Eddie Vedder].” With that small tip, Shaun learned the proper strategy to jamming to any Pearl Jam song.
Michael Jordan also proved to be a hot topic throughout this car trip. Shaun complimented, “So, Kel, I read recently in a magazine, you’re referred to, obviously as the “Michael Jordan of surfing.” And with that one comment, they spent a minute and a half of a 14-minute video discussing the basketball legend. They then debated the meaning of the phrase the “Michael Jordan of something.”
When Shaun asked who the “Michael Jordan of cereal mascots is,” Tony immediately answered, “Tony the Tiger. I stunt-doubled Tony the Tiger. True story, So, if you ever see Tony the Tiger skating in a commercial from the ’80s, It was me.”
Ending with “Whip It” and a surprise visit from Devo, the men outdid themselves. The group refused to do anything but the best; so, they dressed in the perfect attire for the performance— even wearing red Energy dome helmets.
Epic and totally gnarly, these men proved themselves and totally shredded!
