Rodney Mullen vs. Daewon Song is a skateboarding video series that features influential skateboarders Rodney Mullen and Daewon Song.[1][2][3] Three video installments were released under the titles Round 1, Round 2, and Round 3 (the third "round" was incorporated into the debut video for the Almost skateboard company that was cofounded by Mullen and Song).[4][5][6]

History[edit]

Round 1 (1997)[edit]

The first video shows Mullen "competing" against Song—the two are close friends outside of the video series.[7] The video also features combined parts from the World Industries,[8] A-Team,[9] and Blind teams[10] (as they were in 1997 when the video was released). Song and Mullen both appear in their own parts[11][12] that are combined with small sections that feature members of their respective brands' teams.

Round 2 (1999)[edit]

Compared to the first video, Round 2 was produced in a slightly different format. As with Round 1, the video features individual parts from Mullen and Song,[13] and there are also combined parts from the World Industries, A-Team, and Blind[14] teams—some World team members had, by this time, formed the Deca brand. However, there are also short advertisement-like sections throughout the video for the other brands that were being distributed by Dwindle Distribution at the time, making the video similar to an issue of a video magazine.

Round 3 (2004)[edit]

As it is effectively an Almost video, the third installment is considerably different from its predecessors. Almost: Round Three not only includes Song and Mullen, but features full-length parts from the Almost team of the time: Chris Haslam,[15] Cooper Wilt,[16] Greg Lutzka,[17] Ryan Sheckler,[18] and "William Patrick",[19] who was really Tyrone Olson in a costume.[citation needed]
