Although he’s had more “day in the life” videos than almost any athlete out there, when you have a life like Nigel Sylvester, there’s never a shortage of material for another. Nigel’s latest “Go All Day” from Gatorade is by far the raddest yet. From shredding mad spots in the city to an impromptu photo shoot at 21 Mercer with none other than Mel D. Cole to a late night wile out at BOB, Nigel gets it in. If you are from NY you’ll recognize mad people in this video, if you’re not you’ll appreciate it for its sick cinematography and banger backing track from Donnis.
