Ben Travis - Playing the Arcade

Posted (edited)

I've been out riding quite a bit recently, and still enjoying pushing myself to do things outside my comfort zone. Adam Mcguire asked if I'd be interested in making a raw edit, but eventually had enough content to make a full video. So here is the result. Happy to hear any comments good or bad

Massive thanks to Inspired and to Tarty Bikes for their support as ever. For those interested song is - When I'm Small by Phantogram

Plain cool as always, Ben. Always enjoyed the relatively chilled out TGS vids back in the day, and this just oozed casual style throughout. Soundtrack was very fitting too, top stuff (Y)

That first gap was a right heffa. 
And stuff that skinny hook. Not even for a chocolate biscuit.

Whopper.

At first I thought it had been edited with a filter, so that the background was black and white but the bike, the occasional red car and double yellow line popped out in colour. I realised at about the minute mark, that’s it was just a grey day in a grey town.

Aside from your Street Fighter aggression and trying to slam a soft-close door (you dropped your jumper by the way) I loved it. You have a really lazy style, which is a compliment. The massive hooks and side hops looked like you couldn’t be arsed, was doing them against your will,  but smashed them anyway. All to do with the slow and casual run up instead of blasting towards things at pace.

Nice work.

Oh my word... Cannot unsee!

I didn't clock it, but now can't re-watch without thinking this. :lol:

Great as always and an actual video to watch not scrolling through Instagram for clips or sitting through a vlog for a few moves. Your effort and enthusiasm is appreciated.

THanks for all the feedback guys! Trying to find an old school aracde machine in Aberdeen proved difficult, but glad we got there. @Stephen Morris, I did laugh at the soft close door slam. #acting

Appreciate any feedback, and here's a wee bump for others to go ahead and watch it :)

The acting was solid, Ben.  You'll be swiping drinks from Victoria Pendleton before you know it.

Really good video, wouldn't expect anything less ;)
