You may be familiar with the phrase "blood, sweat, and tears," when referring to an person's—particularly athlete's—hard work in a particular field. Tony Hawk took this phrase to another creative level when he "donated his blood as part of a collaboration with water company Liquid Death to produce 100 skateboards."
The 100 skateboards sold out quickly.
According to a social media post from Liquid Death, "Yes, there is actually @tonyhawk's real blood in these skateboards. and yes, we sterilized it first. Own your very own piece of the Birdman. . . Although it could arguably make the world a better place, never ever use these boards to make clones of Tony Hawk."
