Ken Block’s demonstration videos for DC Shoes brought the aesthetic of skateboard videos to the previously ‘boring’ sport of rallying.
Whilst Block is a talented driver he isn’t up with the greats of rallying like Walter Röhl, Stig Blomqvist or Hannu Mikkola. But he has done something that the Europeans couldn’t make rallying a spectacle. The ‘Gymkhana’ shorts have been watched over 150 million times according to Advertising Age journalist Michael Learmouth. What makes volume five special is that it uses the city of San Francisco as its back drop – like a re-re-make of The Italian Job.
Sit back and enjoy the show, the video is on Tudou so you will need to be patient!
