Nobody invented style, we know that, but if anyone is going to get the credit it should be Gino Iannucci. Today’s #TBT is from the Snuff video by 101, which in case you don’t already know was the brainchild of Natas Kaupas, another company in a long line of World Industries offshoots. Really Snuff was more of a promo at under 13 minutes, but with ripping parts from a young Jason Dill, a twisted up McNatt, and Pulaski pioneer Andy Stone, it had the weight of a full length and in my opinion was the exact moment when 101 peaked. The cameos of the World Park also earned the production 100 extra cool points. More than anything though, Snuff introduced the world to that Gino technique on the board that we all spent the better part of the rest of the century trying to emulate. Remember this part is from ’93, which is like two years after modern humans crawled out of the caves and began walking upright, so yeah, it was pretty cutting edge all things considered. Oh, and another noteworthy fact, this was the first time I’d ever heard of Method Man or Wu Tang Clan, they had a pretty good run after Snuff too.
