1996, 48 minutes
Current Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Big Brotherís first video, as the title may suggest, is a random compilation of footage from the first few years of the publications existence. Rocco's brainchild was so raunchy that newscasts across the country bashed it calling it filthy, inappropriate and pornographic. Witness the foundation being laid for Jackass and a long list of recognizable names being stupid, not to mention, some legitimate skating and a few commercials thrown in here and there.

Bill Pepper getting smashed and fighting with old ladies in Carolina, Wee Man painted blue and orange walking into trendy Hollywood eateries, Carnie at Wigstock Ď95 calling everyone fruit cake, Bong Olympics and depends parties and a Shorty's commercial involving bloody vomit and semen eating. This makes up barely 25% of Shit, which is easily my favorite video ever made by a magazine. Whatís really amazing is the eclectic mix of footage. Between naked men and drunken buffoonery, you get things like The Bucket Brothers, a montage of Ethan Hawke, Dune, Max Schaaf and others ripping SF, Paulo Diaz talking about aliens in South America during what might be his longest video part, as well as a super fresh montage starring Jeremy Klein, the Wray bros, Penny, Donger and Chet Thomas. My words can do this video no justice. It really provides a window into a lost era in skating and definitely set the trend for the current tour videos which there are way too many of. It's just so damn good. Please watch this, then buy Big Brother issues 1-12 on ebay and get learned.
