The ‘Tartan’ Team Edition and the Harbor are a Canada Strange Brew pack. Some details thanks to Matt George (Goodfoot):
UNITED FRONT for NIKE SB.
Dylan , Jesar , and myself worked on this project over two years ago for SB and its great to finally see it coming to fruition. Iâ€™ll add some sneak peaks this week , for now read the background.
When SCTV was confronted by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) for elegedly not having enough Canadian content on their show, comedians Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas simultaneously met the challenge and thumbed their noses at the government agency by creating two characters that would embody all that the world assumed to be true about Canada and Canadians. The McKenzie Brothers were an instant hit and have since come to represent Canadiansâ€™ ability to see their place in the world with a sense of humor and a grain of salt â€¦ or at least a jelly donut eh?
SCTVâ€™s influence has been huge, as has Canadaâ€™s contribution to humor in both Television and film throughout North American culture, but Bob and Doug would be way pissed off if we failed to mention Canadaâ€™s other contributions to the world in the form of donuts, beer, hockey, winter, and â€“ uh â€“ more beer.
The project takes all these influences to heart while trying to translate and integrate something of Canada into the world of Nike SB. Winter gear and traditional outdoor fabrics merge with our simplicity and functionality, all the while having a good laugh at the fact that we are still often misunderstood and â€“ not to mention â€“ underestimated.
