A Day in the Life of Ben Carden

Posted March 2, 2006 by éS

Ben Carden wakes up. Ben Carden immediately drinks an orange soda. Ben Carden busts some tricks in the kitchen. Ben Carden eats a slice of pie. Ben Carden spills a white substance on his zipper. Ben Carden drives to the store to buy more candy. Ben Carden fills his glove box, ashtray and every open space in his car with said candy. Ben Carden drives around in a rap music-fueled sugar rush. Ben Carden spray paints horizontal stripes on his pants. Ben Carden attempts push-ups on an éS Mainblock logo rug in a skate shop, but fails miserably. Ben Carden has a ball sessioning spots with his friends. Ben Carden repeats all of the above several times a day, every day. Welcome to A Day in the Life of Ben Carden by Charles Wray, a hilarious 20-minute video clip about a seriously funny and hyper kid. Watch it right now. You'll be glad you did.

  9. Froston, I've never heard of that, plus it's off-topic, plus it's Sole Technology, not Sole Tech.

  28. There is a LONGER VERSION of this!?! haha
    I did find that pretty funny though.
    The bit towards the end where they were skatin all at once looked like they were having the funnest time EVER lol.

    But yeah, i agree on wha one kid above said - why is his mom supporting him?! he doesnt go to school, doesnt have a job, but yet he spends loads on candy n junk food... haha this kids got A.D.D

    iamdgk Posted: 9 years ago
  29. who knows why his mom still supports him... it's insane... he's screwed too cause he just bought a 200 dollar razor phone and it's garunteed to be destroyed so fast... I'd give it 3 months MAX. glad most people are enjoying this... once again, seriously hit me up on myspace, I'd be hyped to talk to new people.
