The Manboys: King of the Elephants Presented

“The Manboys take to the mean streets of Blackcomb mountain, their favourite mountain in the world, to draw pictures of Babar and investigate some snowy features. The drama escalates when one of them (Jody) catches a cold. Then they head into the lands that lay behind, and discover a thing or two about going fast and jumping over cattle. This episode’s main themes are: Pachyderm Royalty and Beards.
If anyone cares, the Manboys are: Matt Belzile, Chris Rasman, Jody Wachniak, Robjn Taylor, Rusty Ockenden, and Mark Sollors. Shooting was performed almost entirely by Nate Laverty, but also by Tom and Kirk, who don’t even know each other, that’s how crazy this shit is.”
 
 

The Manboys: Cooke City & Fatty Yogurts

“In this episode, The Manboys head to Cooke City, Montana, and it quickly becomes their favorite location to say out loud. The fact that it’s actually in Montana doesn’t change a thing. Posing as some kind of wintery wild west with sleds instead of stallions, Cooke City promises the Manboys a hell of a snowboarding time. In exchange, the townspeople demand some of the Manboys’ blood in vials, which they then store in a giant refrigerator down by the post office. Is that weird? They thought so too. Also visited in this episode: Nakusp, British Columbia. Excellent selection of delicious, fatty yogurts in Nakusp.

The Manboys: Photobalm

“Several main characters are, spoiler alert, killed off in this episode. It’s a lot like the Game of Thrones but without any nudity or dragons or careful planning. Maybe that’s a problem. There should be more nudity? Next time. Between now and then, please feel free to watch us, fully clothed, trying really hard to snowboard correctly off of jumps that are either handmade or just the result of plate-tectonics doing their thing. Also, this one has a bit of an intro at the beginning that really focuses on group photography and bad acting, so if that doesn’t interest you, then go ahead and close your eyes for the first forty seconds or so. Either way, it’s that time of year, so Happy Christmas one and all!
Starring: Mark Sollors, Rusty Ockenden, Chris Rasman, Matt Belzile, Robjn Taylor, Jody Wachniak”
 
 

The Manboys: Farewell Horses

“Manboys here. Much of the snow in this episode appears to be fresh, which might lead you to believe that we have driven reliable, cutting-edge snow machines far into the Whistler wilderness in order to access such remote zones. But that’s just not true. We mostly ride horses. The problem is, is that horses don’t film well. And statistically, they score very low on Instagram. So we say, “Fuck filming the horses,” and we just don’t do it. Instead, we take some sleds out for a day and get them stuck everywhere, always in front of a camera, and that usually creates the illusion of living the snowmobiling lifestyle that all the raw skateboarders and surfers seem to be so jealous of.”
Chris Rasman, Matt Belzile, Mark Sollors, and Rusty Ockenden do most of the snowboarding in this one. Feel free to enjoy the hell out of it.”
 
 

The Manboys: Fish Tacos

“The Manboys head out to the Canadian Rockies in late spring, RV-style, just to see what the big horn sheep are up to this time of year. Instead, they accidentally find themselves riding 2 feet of winter-grade powder and also dirt bikes. But not at the same time.”
