Current Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Emerica's Yellow features many underexposed rippers like John Cardiel, Tim Brauch, Mike Maldonado, Dan Drehobl and Phil Shao, as well as some more recognizable heroes like Jamie Thomas, Marc Johnson, Dave Mayhew and Chris Senn. The skating is representative of a transitional period when things were getting bigger rather than more technical. The majority of the video features street skating but there is some contest footage and a small vert section.

Yellow has the look and feel of a Toy Machine video that isn't as well put-together. The skating is easy on the eyes as most of the skaters have style to spare. There are few surprises but a couple of tricks seem to come out of nowhere, like Ron Whaley's 43-impossible and Jamie Thomas' ollie to ledge 50-50 to wall-ride. Phil Shao’s (RIP) part stands out, as does Think teammate Dan Drehobl's. Drehobl in particular destroys a bank to vert spine. The video's downfall is its shoddy production; for example, songs are clipped too short and changed sometimes after just a few tricks from one skater. The effect is a lack of flow. This is a shame as the footage is killer. More of an effort could have produced a video that would be up there with Jump Off A Building.
