PolSky
'Song for the Silver Surfer'
9 March 2023 4 mins 15s

Either the sprightly old man in this Polsky promo injects cod liver oil into his veins, or there's more to his performance than meets the eye. It's the latter, of course, as underneath the fake beard and prosthetics lies AJ James, professional acrobat and traceur.

That means he can backflip off walls, jump down stairs, skateboard along Brighton promenade, and perform high kicks to his heart's content. Though the overall tone is upbeat and carefree, there is an air of melancholy throughout Jamie Thraves's film.

As vocalist Kris Warren sings, "What are we gonna do when we get older?", the man slows down long enough to scatter ashes on the beach. He may have lost that special someone, but he also knows how important it is to move on... and boy, does he move.
