Tony Hawk and Japan Crate to kickflip Japanese snacks right to your door


They will mail it to you, no kickflips

Tony Hawk is a name very familiar to many of those who grew up in the late 90's and early 2000's all thanks to those awesome Tony Hawk Pro Skater games about collecting the letters S-K-A-T-E and pulling off some sick tricks on a skateboard. While Tony's most recent video game outing was just a great disappointment (which isn't Tony's fault), the Birdman is doing something really different this time around and it involves Japanese subscription snack service Japan Crate.

Japan Crate is one of those subscription services where you can order a box of goodies, and in this case, a selection of snacks and sweets straight from Japan. I first saw all of this in a tweet by Tony Hawk yesterday (video tweet below) and took a second for it to register that it was the world renowned skater who landed an impossible trick at the time in 1999 where he spun around 2.5 times in the air was touring a Japanese candy factory.

The tweet video by Hawk shows the Hawk family trying out candy at a candy factory in Japan, which shows the entire process of making and packaging the sweet treats to assembling the special Tony Hawk Japan Crate box. The Tony Hawk Japan Crate box will feature 14 Japanese snacks chosen by Tony himself along with a, get ready for this--- a skateboard fidget spinner. Yes, one of those things you see these days but in the shape of a skateboard but with Tony Hawk's name on it which somewhat tolerable interesting for those over the age of 25.

There is also another promo video above of Tony Hawk in Japan about the collaboration giving us some insight on this very interesting box of Japanese goodies. We'll try to get one of these special Tony Hawk Japan Crates for an unboxing video, as well as maybe something special for those wanting to get a Japan Crate so stay tuned!
