Smart Cars Are Like Skateboards: Lots of Fun for Two Pro skaters share a board in nifty U.K. ad

Professional freestyle skaters Kilian Martin and Alfredo Urbon share a board for this visually engaging Smart car ad, from agencies AMV BBDO and Weapon7 and director Ben Newman of Pulse Films. The car's a two-seater, so the connection here is pretty obvious. And the Martin/Urbon pairing features some cool street longboarding, which I haven't seen since SK8-TV was still on the air. Could've done without the crappy remix of "You Rascal You," though. It sounds like a 45 that was playing at 33⅓.
