GET OUT AND DO SOMETHING WITH THE MATTSON 2

Our compadres The Mattson 2 are some of the most creative dudes we know. Vans caught up with them on tour and found out what inspires them to do what they do. Aptly named, a motto we aim to live by: Get Out and Do Something!

GET OUT AND DO SOMETHING



So the Vans Get Out and Do Something tour is amazing. Great concept behind it and amazing people involved, Ray Barbee, The Mattson 2, John Cardiel and Pnut. Come on, thats a epic lineup.
This is a sweet little video to get a little inside scoop on all of those talents.
