Guys, you know he knew he was joking…the guy did it way back in the day. it’s late 90.s early 21st century what he did.
Y’all fail to realize the yoyo’s we have today, weren’t really the same back when he did this joke. He knew it was a joke, if I remember correctly, the whole thing was.
I am pretty sure you weren’t yo-ing back in that time. I wasn’t even. Josh Yee was. Yo-ing was not the same. In the 90’s and early 21st century, there were quite some jokes from Non-yoers and the News. It’s because it was cool. The news stations don’t even recognize we exist anymore, and that’s bad imo. JD was the big start of the mass of today’s tricks we use in comps a lot (He wasn’t the only one, but he was a big leap). This thread in general seems…pointless, only because a lot for y’all don’t know the whole story. He wasn’t a troll (Term wasn’t even existent with that usage then. And y’all are misusing it in modern terms, too.) He never insulted people, nor was he trying to. It’s so odd, talking bout him again, since that was partly my first step into the yo-yo world, believe it or not. I never took him seriously, but that’s kind of what started my interest in them like I am now.
