36 Freebord riders from San Francisco came together one gloriously clear night and made some Game Boy-inspired magic. Sporting neon Tetris halos, the riders cruised down a dark street in San Francisco and captured a Tetris skateboarding light show that will not soon be upstaged.

Set to perfectly matched music, the video shows off the Tetris skateboarding stunt in a way that will make you want to rewatch it over and over again.

Implications - As subcultural expression grows, so do the points of intersection between social groups. These San Francisco residents have successfully melded their love for street art, skateboarding and retro video games, a feat which may have seemed unlikely a few years ago. By targeting customers at these convergent social points, businesses are poised to attract the attention of several audiences, not just one.
