A trio of pro skaters headed up by Chocolate's Kenny Anderson take center stage in the recently released music video for the Doors classic "L.A. Woman."
As rock fans celebrate four decades of the band's sixth and final studio album, the two-CD "L.A. Woman: 40th Anniversary" hit the shelves earlier this year, accompanied by the DVD/Blu-Ray "Mr. Mojo Risin': The Story of L.A. Woman" and the new video staring Anderson, with teammate Alex Olson and Baker pro Braydon Szafranski.
The three friends were filmed over the course of a single weekend skating locations that play significant roles in the history of the band, including Venice Beach, the Hollywood Bowl, and the Sunset Strip outside the Whiskey A Go Go nightclub.
"It was cool getting to hang out with [Doors guitarist] Robby Krieger," says Olson, 26, who was born and raised in Santa Monica.
In the video, the 66-year-old Krieger takes Szafranski's board for a ride. "He walked right up and grabbed my board and started skating," remembers Szafranski, who got hooked up to do the video through longtime friend Anderson, a friend of the video's director, Matt Goodman.
Goodman was the director of photography of "X Games 3D: The Movie," released in 2009. This video production was decidedly more low-key, says Szafranski.
"[Goodman] had a vision of it not being a huge production," he added. "It was just lifestyle shots all day long."
On the Baker front, there's plenty of filming going on as well, says Szafranski, 28, who spoke with ESPN.com over the phone on his way to Malibu Pier. "We're working on the Bake and Destroy video. It's hustle time. Every single day is just us killing ourselves. Except today. I'm sore. I'm going fishing."
