While the minutemen are worried about Mexicans violating American sovereignty, these backwater blue staters should start focusing their attention to the north. Nuu Life Cinema has become the latest Canadian entry in the Superpark Sunday Showdown to advance out of the first round and they did so by a healthy 6% of the votes. This gap adds insult to injury for Eddie Grams of Variety pack because as a Utah native he wishes he could find some 6%-ers to help ease the pain of defeat at the hands of Cannuks.
Week 6 is now upon us and we have two more Superpark Sunday Showdown contenders, with Play Big Productions going head-to-head against Dump Em. Vote for your favorite video and help them advance to the next round and potentially win $5,000 compliments of Gatorade.

Play Big Productions
As the official film company of Mammoth's Unbound Park Greg Weaver and his Play Big associates have the home hill advantage when it comes to the Superpark Sunday Showdown. Yet despite the logistical advantages that this could yield, their offering is a no frills account of Superpark 14. In other words, the dolly cams and after effects have been tossed aside, leaving the trickery in the hands of the riders themselves. Multiple 1260's and a standout Centipede annihilation by Haldor Helgason are among the more memorable moments of this video. As for the soundtrack, well, lets just say that it is in keeping with the Animal House theme and any song that includes the line "it's not gonna be an orgy, it's a toga party" can't be all bad.
"You dump em, we film it" is the ethos behind Colton Feldman's latest video endeavor. The collective work of Colton Feldman and company at Superpark 14 can be seen here, set to the psychedelic stylings of a Los Angeles bar band called The Doors crooning their cover of "Gloria". Written by Van Morrison and originally recorded by his band "Them" in 1964, "Gloria" was actually a throw away track which found new life as the b-side to Them's "Baby Please Don't Go Single." The fact the Van Morrison, Them and The Doors are from an era where whole careers could be based off of singles, throw away ones at that, just goes to show you how far music and snowboarding has come. Take this video submission where the BS 1260 double cork by Torgeir Bergrem is easily one of the highlights.
