For $500 you can buy a lot of things. Especially if you convert it into South African rands. One of those things include a limited edition custom-made skateboard decorated with Tony Hawk’s blood.
The veteran skateboarder has been named as one of Liquid Death Mountain Water’s brand ambassadors. As part of the big announcement, the company manufactured 100 skateboards and the decoration on these custom-made boards include the 53-year-old’s blood.
News24 reports that for the skateboards, two vials of Tony’s blood were mixed in the paint used to decorate the boards with an image of an axe-wielding shirtless and headless man, whose head has been replaced by canned water.
The water company posted on their social media platforms that it really is Tony Hawk’s blood in these skateboards and they confirmed that they sterilised it first before mixing it with the paint.
Although it definitely raised some eyebrows, the skateboards can be considered a hit as all 100 of them sold out overnight.
Watch the Liquid Death video below to see how the canned water company Liquid Death Mountain Water used the skateboarder’s blood to decorate the skateboards.
