Sk8 or die: “Uh-oh” with bonus Pulp Fiction style conceit

So … die?

Found all kinds of claimed “sources” for this picture in various places on the internet. I was concerned about accuracy and quickly chased down the leads. This confirms that the picture was taken above the notably unusual Dean’s Office at Los Angeles High, 4650 West Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90019. If I had to guess, I’d say the picture probably was taken during this event, the Xbox 360 “Get Up” tour (but I’m not suggesting the skater in this picture was affiliated with the tour).

The school’s websitehas galleries of pictures with identical architecture and painting to the one in the sk8 or die shot, with the same brick pattern and lettering typeface, along with pictures featuring the distinctive slanted roof of the office. So I’m positive. I’m also unbelievably full of myself about finding the school quickly and correctly. Like, so arrogant right now.

Booyakasha. Research, motherfuckers; can you do it??
