The Trick That Shook the World: Shaun White’s Double McTwist 12 Most Viewed Video on TWS Site in 2010


Is any other Transworld Snowboarding video even close?

Nope. Shaun White’s Double McTwist 1260 video – which was captured at a Grand Prix practice session on Jan. 22, 2010 – shook the Snowboarding World. Oakley’s Global Snowboarding icon threw it down right before the Winter Olympics, where he bagged the Pipe Gold with that very trick, of course (which ripped a hole in the O-zone layer itself…with the insane video views from everywhere).

It’s no surprise that the original video took the very top honors for Transworld Snowboarding’s Top Ten Most Viewed Videos Of 2010. No. 1 with no question.

Here’s the text from an original posting:

“Shaun White busted out an insane new trick at the final Grand Prix practice under the lights at Park City tonight—a double McTwist 1260. He says, he booked it straight to Park City after the Mammoth Grand Prix and, reminiscent of last winter when he innovated several double corks in the pipe, he fixated on this new goal. He says pretty much everything came together, the sun came out, the pipe was perfect, and, ” I just looped it a couple times and it just landed itself basically.” He put down five more in a row right after that and then busted it out for everyone to see tonight. He says the trick to the trick is that, ‘You’ve gotta know right at that right moment to pull back after the first McTwist.’ Got it?
