Cool or Lame: Jeremy Bloom Video on Outside

Yes, it’s time for another edition of Cool or Lame, a gadling feature whereby we consider an issue, article or media
item and ask: is it cool or is it lame. Today, we have
a very quick video produced for Outside
Magazine about free-style skier Jeremy Bloom. I watched it, and then I rewatched it and, um, well…I guess I thought
this was really lame. I mean, wouldn’t a short film about a skier show the skier skiing? And what’s with all the flips?
Let alone the skinny-dipping scene. I wanted to like it, but
has the feel of a really bad 1970s porno film for acrobats.
