Memorize this ‘whack’ rant for when you see your crush with someone else

'His hair, whack. His jewelry, whack. The way that he doesn't even like to smile, whack.'

We’ve all been there: That girl we’ve been crushing on ends up with another dude who’s vastly inferior in every way. That’s whack, right? This dude perfectly sums up exactly what we all would like to say.

It’s a perfect meme, instantly relatable and endlessly shareable. It even fits perfectly into Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools.”

But it’s also taken completely out of context.

You were probably laughing too hard to notice the exact disses this dude is throwing out. But about halfway through his litany of things that are whack, he calls out his rival’s “foot stance.” That’s because the video is actually part of a pro wrestling-style shoot made by Thrasher magazine to hype an upcoming skateboarding competition. You can watch the full diss track below:

The man in the video is Jamal Smith, who’s something of a legend in street skateboarding. His tutorial on how to do a tornado spin, filmed a decade ago at Ithaca Skate Park, has been viewed over 1.1 million times, and he’s been grinding ever since.

Here’s a more recent highlight reel from 2014.

If you’re curious, Smith was narrowly defeated by Wade Desmarmo at the Dime’s 2016 Glory Challenge on Aug. 6, but he should’ve gotten bonus points for his Bret “the Hitman” Hart throwback tee.

It’s pretty clear at this point: Dude really is tight as fuck.
