I love watching flatland trick videos! It's amazing what these guys can do. Here's another one from "Masters of ground" for old time's sake.

Ground work is really popular in Japan because the snowboarding scene is much more closely tied to the street skating scene. Here, vert freestyle across 3 disciplines (BMX, skate, Inline skating) has been the heavy emphasis for years before freestyle snowboarding really kind of took off and went full on mainstream in the late 90's. Street comps where never given the same level of precedence or attention. So when snowboarding did catch on, naturally it went the same way (vert) eventually maturing the slopestyle scene too.

The result street snowboarding and consequently, buttering, isn't nearly as popular. If you ask me, the Japanese area bit too obssessed with ground work. I have a friend who lived in Japan and became obssessed with their culture - a real otaku or whatever they call themselves - and I constantly am forced to watch the newest buttering edit. I'm also stuck buttering the greens half the day, too. Boring.
I don't disagree with you; it would be dumb to argue that vert doesn't get a helluva lot more media attention when compared to street & park. But vert was the last thing I was thinking about when I commented about the vid being boring.

I don't really equate that video to street skating; in my mind, that video would be more comparable to watching a 50min. video of no one but Rodney Mullen. Are the tricks unique and difficult? Yes. But, does it get repetitious and boring? Double yes.

SNOWBOARD MASTER OF GROUND 1-2 ( butter , flatland , flateos ) - YouTube
Anyone else notice there's like three sequences that are exactly the same between both this video and the one in the op?

I wanted to commit seppuku...if I had to watch all 50 minutes I'd probably go Battle Royale on everyone within cutting distance.

Is it blasphemous for me to say I find most snowboard videos boring? The last big movie before art of flight I fell asleep a few minutes in. I think it all gets repetitive no matter what

I think most cross discipline riders you see competing or filming lots of street style edits in either are an example of how you naturally get street skaters picking up snowboarding and gravitating toward street stuff rather than vert or slopestyle. Most of the ThirtyTwo team riders are very competent skaters and could probably skate for the Etnies brand, too. I know JP and Simon do some back country stuff, but they're really known for their street edits and riding.

Then you have guys like Shaun White who is cross disciplined agian, but vert in both.

Japan has a very strong street skating scene that generates a lot of street style riders, hence the abundance of butterers that come from Japan. Japan, in general, has a very strong snowboard culture, but their freestyle culture is almost predominantly street skaters who crossed over.

So while buttering might not be the same as street skating, it seems thats just what street skaters gravitate towards when they cross over. That and shooting street parts.
