The dudes are back with their final installment of their 2014 video series. Its been a real treat boys.
Joe and the gang tap the Funk Button three times in the latest Dudish installment. Now you might be thinking, “Hey these are so funny, and I like them, but I am not getting the full VTT treatment here, I want more shredding.” But look closely, what you find is that though these edits are not end to end wheel turners, the parts that do have riding are very choice. Joe Barnes can link turns like no other, those switchbacks? Jeeeeeeesh! Not mention the gratuitous use of the fisheye lens. Fantastic!
Sign me up for a trials motorbike while you are at it, so fun. Plus the helmets are super cool. Non-fullface D2 anyone?
Joe Barnes is doing it right. He could have looked back on his season and thought, “Hey, I finished on the podium at an Enduro World Series event and finished 9th overall in the series, I should get out a RED camera, select my favorite dub-step cuts, design some slick graphics, and make a facsimile of almost every other video out there at the moment to really push my brand.”
To the benefit of us all he didn’t, instead he continued to produce the Dudes of Hazzard, a mix of on bike schralping, off bike antics, and conceptual absurdity that takes itself just as seriously as anything based on professional recreation should. If this strikes your fancy don’t worry, there is a couple years worth of back catalogue to watch and the Dude’s don’t deviate.
