Entitled "The Other Half," the fifth installment of the Paul Rodriguez "Life" documentary series finds P-Rod in San Francisco for the 2012 Dew Tour skate street event. The title of the video works on different levels -- it can refer to Paul's burgeoning celebrity status, in which increased exposure means having to manage encounters with fans. It can refer to negotiating the career path of a professional skateboarder, where competitions now come with hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money, as well as the potential for lucrative sponsorship deals. And it can point to those days when things just aren't clicking -- a metaphorical "bad hair day" that one simply has to power through. At the end of the day, Paul is in the finals, and as wisely he points out, it's all that matters. Check out the video below.
