On Sept. 4, Tony Hawk‘s highly-awaited Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater reboot was released. Since its debut, fans have been showing off their clever creations within the game including one particular blink-182 fan.
A player has recreated Tom DeLonge‘s iconic “First Date” character Boomer in the new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2. As well, a slasher movie fan has introduced their Freddy Krueger creation to the legendary skate game.
The Pro Skater reboot gives players more control over who they play and what they look like than ever before. Now, it seems that fans are really taking advantage of all of the options available.
This week, Reddit user @crimson_APD shared their latest Pro Skater creation to the blink-182 thread and it is truly impressive. They have recreated DeLonge’s Boomer from the “First Date” music video, handlebar mustache and all. Equipped with his yellow shirt, shorts and Vans, the virtual recreation of the iconic character is spot on.
Featuring his infamous striped sweater and even a purple top hat, Kreuger is apparently leaving his murderous behavior behind to hit the pavement in the new Pro Skater.
For those out there who are not creative enough to create your own players, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 has plenty of options available. From the legendary skaters to new pro skaters, there is now a diverse selection of skaters to play. The new lineup is in efforts to make the game more inclusive and representative of the skating world today.
Along with the revamped game, a Pro Skater documentary debuted back in August. Pretending I’m A Superman offers a look into how the franchise’s legacy got its start. The documentary is available to watch now on digital streaming services.
blink-182’s “First Date” video is available to watch below.
