The city of Detroit is not dead at all

“The once famous motorcity Detroit in decay…” is what you probably heard the last few years when media described the situation of this city in the US. Well, that is only one side of this story…

Today, the young people of the Motor City are making it their own DIY paradise where rules are second to passion and creativity. They are creating the new Detroit on their own terms, against real adversity.

Palladium, the boots brand, started a campaign to show this other face. Together with Johnny Knoxville (yes the Jackass-one) you can check out this journey, captured in these great videos!
