WOW! Many thanks to Laurie Harris for getting this encoded! It was lost away on a VHS tape for over a decade. Almost all of these players are still around — how amazing is that? Here’s a few additional photos from the event.

Wish We Were At Worlds

February 2, 2010


Back in the day of no money and no job, getting to Worlds on a yearly basis was an impossible feat for many of the Spin Doctors. This video was created/released the same week that Worlds 2001 was planned. Even though we couldn’t get to Worlds, we still wanted to show off some of our latest tricks and combos.

This is probably one of my favorite videos made, mainly because of how groundbreaking some of the tricks were at the time. This video featured a few sequels such as Orange Tulips (Red Clover II) and TimeTwister 2, which took the original tricks and expanded on their concepts. But the real showcase of the video were the phenominal Yellow Airplanes (Kamikaze II), White Buddha 2nd Generation, and Breath. These tricks almost single-handedly pushed yoyoing into an era of more complex slack and plane-breaking. Unfortunately, plane-breaking was difficult to film due to angles and never really caught on until much later in decade.
