Help me find a barely-remembered random youtube video

ID this youtube video! Skateboarding in a roller rink, ridiculous outfit, handstand tricks. Ringing any bells?

I vaguely remember seeing a very impressive, sort of delightful video featuring a man skating around a roller rink on a skateboard, and I'd like to find it again. The skater was doing all sorts of impressive things (handstands, etc.). As I recall he was wearing shiny spandex, and I recall that there was something 80s-ish about the video--probably either the outfit or the music. The video was fairly high-quality: no shaky camera (maybe even multiple angles) and good lighting. The man doing the skating was the only one in this nice-looking, wooden-floor (I think) rink.

This is nowhere near enough information for my trifling google skills to find the video. I'll be impressed if you guys can help me find this!

Sounds like something Rodney Mullen would do, but I don't know the video. Regardless, he's the king of flatland tricks, so you might be interested anyway.

Thanks, cmoj. Valient attempt to answer based on very little information!

Future searchers of bizarre spandex-including skateboard videos (surely you are legion): I went looking AGAIN (for way too long) and found it! Behold, Daniel Gesmer performing "87 Dreams of a Lifetime."
