This dude partied his face off every night!
The infamous watermelon bong. Not everyone escaped unscathed.
The media had a field day with it.
That track suit God.
Okay, on over to the Triangle skatepark you may remember from 2015. And a mobile sauna!
Legend has it there are mermaids in the water around Copenhagen. Hans Christian Anderson even wrote a book about one.
Swear I might have seen a couple… maybe it was that watermelon bong tho…
Legendary men wear legendary coats.
Crowd fav! Franky Villani.
