Chris Haffey was featured on a “fake or real?” type of show on Pro Sieben (German TV).
They saw his infamous 666-rail clip on Youtube (originally from Lonnie Gallego’s video NOISE) and went all the way to Los Angeles so Chris could prove he could do it again.
A full translated transcript of the video is available here (check the description). Thanks Al Dolega & Meatlove.
666 Rail, Original Video
The 666 Rail by Chris Haffey and Robert Guerrero, from Lonnie Gallegos’ 2002 video NOISE.
A true master of the mash up, Dan Leifeld has been bringing new and old blading to our screens in a totally unique way for quite some time now.
Dan’s knowledge of rollerblading history may well be unparalleled. His commitment to the hours spent pouring over classic videos and obscure TV commercials from blading’s 90s hey day is a marvel in itself.
This particular series of videos was first available as a VOD earlier in the year and we are extremely happy to have partnered with Dan on bringing them to the world in a permanent home. Featuring a lot of your favourite pros and some you might have forgotten about. Chapter One is 27 minutes of pure brilliance.

With all your favourite pros. Section of Chris Haffey at 16:00. Also featuring the famous leap of faith slam with Ian Brown (24:35).
Bonus: Ian Brown vs the Leap of Faith (2000) by Jan Welch
Song: Pink Floyd – Wish You Were. 2012 Repost.
In 2000, Ian Brown from Australia attempted to jump the now infamous “leap of faith” in San Diego for his first and last time.
Unlike everyone before and after him he did not jump the “leap of faith” by simply acid dropping over the top of the rail.
Ian tried to clear the first set and the part of the flat before going over the rail.
He did not have enough speed and hit the rail with his lower back while rotated 180. This edit was made and never released.
It was supposed to appear in United Front 2: Trash (2004) as a bonus section but there was not enough space left on the Dvd to include it.
