June 26, 2012 – Corona, CA – Monster Energy is proud to launch its skate Red Cam Series featuring Pierre Luc Gagnon (PLG) who is shot in the dark at the famed Monster Energy | DC Vert Training Facility (TF) – Carlsbad, CA where Monster Energy goes behind the scenes. Get up close and personal with PLG as he puts down some insane tricks with the lights out while giving you some insight into his world through an intimate interview-style clip.

Shooting at 120 frames per second – this is Monster Energy's first attempt to turn the lights down for some amazing tricks as we watch PLG take his street inspiration to the vert ramp.

"I always get really inspired by street skating so I'll watch and then see what those guys do on ledges and stairs and then I try to bring that to the vert ramp," said PLG.

Known as one of the hardest working and dedicated skaters in the game, PLG is more than ready to dominate this weekend at the X Games Los Angeles 2012 as he competes in Skateboard Vert and is set up to take home his 8th Gold medal.

"I am 100 percent dedicated to skateboarding," said PLG. "That is what I live for. Skateboarding is more than just something I do…it's a whole lifestyle."
