Sponsor Me – NOW B****!
BOARDS & BIKES, MUSIC & FILM — 20/10/2015 — by Christian B.
Ethan Morgan is a young German shredder, residing in Innsbruck and currently looking for snowboard promo-employment. Watch the clip representing his sponsor-me-tape. I bet you, if Yankee-shredders weren’t caught up in a political-correctness nightmare they would produce videos just like this one all the time. But since snowboarding in the states has more pressure from the market-side of things, legit is made in Germany these days. Or to put it in more educated words: Bitch better have my money!
ABP: Congrats, you can officially pride yourself of “bringing back the sponsor me tape” – do you feel like a keeper of the old snowboarding values before the big money?
Thank you thank you, yeah i am honored to bring it back, and let people know why we all started this sport in the first place, just to have fun and not give a fuck. I mean yeah big money is nice too, but i would rather keep on doing what i have been doing and have fun than selling out and doing stuff i am not stoked on.
Have any potential sponsors called yet?
I dont wanna say too much, but yeah some people have been hitting me up, i guess the tape helped. so i am hyped.
Do you think you presented a satisfying amount of emotional assets? (I.e. your dog, cats, family crying while stating “we were so worried about him when he was young…)
Yeah, whatever that means i just tried to keep it real and emotional so i made sure to show my personal life so people get to know me more.
Of any non-endemic brands, which would you love to shred for the most?
I am always up for whatever, just as long as the company has a legit team that i can get along with and they support me in any way they can then i am more than happy to get in on a program like that.
Since the Nike gig is over now, what kinda shoes will you wear in summer?
Probably no shoes at all, i will just rock barefoot for everything, even for snowboarding, it might hurt and my ankles might get fucked, but i won’t wear shoes until i get a sponsor.
I heard you re big on Birkenstock?
yeah the birkenstock is always the way to go though. I will maybe get myself an insurance birkenstock pair if the snow gets too cold on my feet.
What would be a nightmare sponsor combo head to toe?
Ed hardy head to toe. that shit is so gay that its Gangster again.
What will you do next winter?
I have some plans but i havent locked them down 100% but i will be working on some projects this year.
Are you already training for the next Olympics?
yes, korea has to be careful because i am gonna come in hot, or not.
Will you rap for food?
No, i quit rapping after choking up on stage for my first rap battle when i was young, ever since then i have gotten stage freight.
– Thanks Ethan!
