I don’t speak a lick of Czech, but I’ll watch pretty much anything with Ann Connolly and Vashek Kroutil. Seriously, if they released a video of the two of them grocery shopping, I’d post it.

Vu Ho – Five Dollar Sweater
Werrd Allience member Vu Ho gears up for Australian Sydney Regional YoYo Contest with this sneak-peek video. We’re loving this new trend of players building up excitement for their contest routines…and we hope this starts becoming standard practice for all the top names in the competition scene.
C3YoYoDesign Presents: Augie Fash – Shredding
C3YoYoDesign superstar Augie Fash rocks out his new signature yoyo, the Electric Flash, in his first full-length video since last year’s “Hometown Hero“. Augie is in top form here, and I got a chance to try his new yoyo at Nationals…and it’s a great throw! A perfect throw for his super-fast style, the Electric Flash and C3YoYoDesign are a solid fit for this new chapter in Augie’s yoyo career.
Harrison Lee – International Man of Mystery
The UK-based Trinity YoYo Club has another video Q &A session…this time with CLYW player Harrison Lee!
Harrison also recently announced that he filmed a small part in the upcoming Seth Rogen film, “The Interview“. IMDB’s plot synopsis of The Interview says: “An attractive talk show host and his producer unwittingly get caught up in an international assassination plot.” We have no idea what Harrison is doing in the movie, but we’re sure it’s going to be awesome!
I’m going to be in @Sethrogen and @gravytrainevan‘s new movie, The Interview! It was awesome working with such a fun and awesome crew 😀
