why does everyone in the bmx world call videos "edits"
Videos for a long time came in the form of VHS tapes and then DVD's. In bmx or skateboarding when people say "video", most of the time they're referring to a DVD you can buy with multiple sections and many different riders..... "edits" are usually comprised of footage collected in a very short time or even throw away clips that aren't of good enough quality to use in a DVD. Most of the time they're used to promote certain products or a brand. They're short, feature one song, and one rider most of the time.
Pretty gay, but there is a slight difference.
