This Video Has Been Viewed Every 4 Seconds Since It Went Live.


It's called "Ken Block Gymkhana Practice." (But what is Gymkhana?, you ask.)

We didn't really get the big deal, but that was before we realized our fingers had burrowed into the glass tabletop. Then Ken Block did donuts around a guy on a Segway, and it was like, "Ohhh."

(It's racer porn. Plenty sexier than that one time you watched two Ford Fiestas tango in London. Even if you're not a speed junkie, the handling depicted in Gymkhana is fit to give you tingles.)

Mad Media put the video together in collaboration with Ken Block, DC Shoes and Subaru. Stats listed below.

This video definitely spread like wild fire, and for good reason. Most car videos are shaky, hand-held, low-quality vids made by some kid out of the back of his minivan as his friend crashes into a garbage can or spins 'donuts'. This was high-quality car porn from a guy that is defining a new age of racing and doing a sport that most people had never even heard of before. Plus, it's a perfect match to the Subaru/DC market. In my opinion, money well spent on this one.

Wow... Can I unclench my teeth now?

Nicely edited, too.
