Pixel Sloth & Slumped in Paradise

December 4, 2018By hellagripBlog

“Still debating if SD images are cooler than HD? We’re blowing up that whole argument right now. Forget about 1080p, 720p and all the wannabe low-lifers claiming 240p resolution. If you’re a true visual genius, then you’re all about that LD life. I’m talking Low Definition… lower than 140p, baby! Smooth, round edges are for chumps in the 21st century. I need the assurance and precision that only a 90-degree-angled pixel from the 1980’s can give me. That’s why Hella Grip has gone all-in on the pixel party and produced TWO NEW GRIPTAPES (Both on Formula-C 6 x 24in):

SLUMPED IN PARADISE (S.I.P): This griptape looks exactly like the title suggests; a sloth getting super slumped-out on a pristine patch of beachside real estate. Nothing better than a pixel-perfect sunset to compliment the chill vibes. It’s reminiscent of a classic video game’s end credits after you finally beat the Mega Boss. If you find yourself battling a gnarly trick and need some extra motivation, you can always look down at your S.I.P griptape and visualize the evening’s reward for stacking that clip. Hella Grip doesn’t condone substance abuse, but every sloth has her own way of relaxing after a full day of getting stoked on the island of Gnarnia. Regardless of how you choose to get slumped, just be sure to stay safe and slothy (and watch out for land sharks… they prefer the sluggish essence of a slumped sloth).

PIXEL SLOTH: Why not visualize our OG Sloth as a retro video game title screen? If you were fortunate enough to come into contact with an Atari, NES or SEGA game console back in the day, you’ll definitely appreciate this 8-bit-era artwork. My only regret is that there isn’t an actual 8-bit video game to accompany this griptape. Who knows what kind of pixely adventures this Hyper-OG gamer sloth could endeavor? I’m imagining something like “Frogger” except with much slower road traffic. I could also see a slothy rendition of “Grand Theft Auto: Miami Vice” (The traffic could move at the same pace in this game… since our OG Vice Sloth would obviously be able to hijack police cars). I’ll leave the rest of the ideas to our sponsored coders.” by the Boss McMasher @mcmasher ..
