It’s clearly the year of John J … again! At last Friday’s Transworld Riders’ Poll Awards, John Jackson was once more named Rider of the Year and awarded Video Part of the Year for his mind-blowing two-part closer in the 2011 release Fuck It. With back-to-back wins in both of these categories, John has become the first ever rider to take home Video Part of the Year twice, and the second rider to take home Rider of the Year in consecutive years throughout the history of the TWS Riders’ Poll.
Channeling Hansel from Zoolander as he reacts to the big win, Jackson says, “I wasn’t like every other kid, you know, who dreams about being an astronaut, I was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere’s a real hero of mine. Sting. Sting would be another person who’s a hero. The music he’s created over the years, I don’t really listen to it, but the fact that he’s making it, I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what product I’m selling? No. Do I know what I’m doing today? No. But I’m here, and I’m gonna give it my best shot.”
