A 16-second teaser was released for the project in August 2022, showcasing the film’s intense tone and cinematography and the skaters’ mission.
The song’s release comes on the heels of Fliiper’s mysterious appearance at the 2022 MTV VMAs. Two anonymous skaters hit the streets of New Jersey as they raced to deliver the first MTV Moon Persona of the night.
Flipper’s history dates back to 1979, when Ian “Flipper” Ross founded a family rink in Los Angeles. This summer, the iconic roller rink returned in 2022 with a roller skating event at The Rink at Rockefeller Center in New York City. According to an official press release, the brand is set to open a flagship store in London, with the intention of using roller skating to support “positive mental health and emotional well-being”.
