YoYoFactory team members Tyler Severance and Harold Owens III are dropping another taste of their freestyles for the upcoming 2013 World YoYo Contest. Competition is going to be fierce this year, and Harold & Tyler are stepping up early as the American players to beat in 1A and 5A, respectively.
Here’s another “slice of life” video from the Czech Republic, giving us an idea of what it’s like to hang out at the Slusny shop on a sunny afternoon. The Czech yoyo scene is so damn solid! Thanks to Slusny for all the work they put in, and for sharing this video.
Malaysian player favorite Mimi Thian puts in some work with one of the new colors of the YoYoFactory ONEStar in this quick new promo video from Malaysian retailer, 28Spin.com. Mimi is always a pleasure to watch!
Modern-day gentleman juggler Tom Gaskin put together this great video showing off his mastery of traditional “gentleman juggling”, which involved a lot of hat & cane work, plus a mouthstick made to look like a cigar as well as cigar box juggling. Traditionally, gentleman jugglers would perform routines made to look specifically effortless, as though they had taken a break from a cocktail party to amuse a few children before they wandered back for another round of drinks. But Gaskin puts in a bit more modern flair and turns out a really nice video that captures the old while still keeping it in a modern setting and style.
Ok, this is our last love letter to Harrison Lee. This week, anyway.
Harrison racked up two more broadcast TV spots leading up to the recent Western Canada Regionals, including CBC News Vancouver and Global TV, both of which are embedded below. CLYW really caught lightning in a bottle with Harrison, and it’s great to see him handling himself so well in all these interviews!
And in case you missed it, here’s Harrison’s stellar 2nd Place finish at the Western Canada Regionals. Great job, Harrison!
From YoYoFactory’s Poland team, Protegé Borys Radziszewski tears it up with a Gacek ONE. Really nice work!
