Video of The Day: Bangkok featured in skate video

I just saw beautiful images of Bangkok in a, what turned out to be, surprising skate video. BillabongASIA's Geng Jakkarin is profiled in this video titled "I Skate Because". And while Jakkarin's story is moving and his skate tricks are, well, sick, I couldn't help but fixate on the Bangkok sights and scenes within the short film. The video starts off with a shot of a painted train over a track that states, 'Bangkok, City of Life', and the self-described vivacious city's stunning scenery unfolds in the background of this video from there. Storm clouds, graffiti, Palm Trees, and the sun setting on the water-fronted horizon act as a backdrop to slick skate moves and a the personal story of just one exceptionally talented skater from Thailand. But sometimes this is the way I like to see things--to experience them in my periphery, to imprint them subconsciously as the forefront demands my attention, as I drift away from the main point and toward the buzzing beautiful background.
