Shot in an abandoned theme park in the Mojave Desert for MB by Mercedes-Benz, the "Altered Route" video is really unlike any skate video you've ever seen before. Featuring skater and former gymnast, Kilian Martin the video takes on the feel of a movie, more than just a typical skate edit.

The really interesting part, of course, is the actual skating. Martin uses his background in gymnastics to introduce an entirely new approach to skating which has been receiving positive feedback and support from respected members of the skate community like Stacy Peralta, George Powell and Mike Vallely.

Check out some highlights in the thumbs above and peep the full 4 minute video below.
