Ken Block releases barge-tastic Gymkhana 5 trailer
Ken Block is a talented man, no doubt about it. Though we wish – and we’re sure he’d wholeheartedly agree – that his talents led to a few major race wins, Block is nothing if not an effective marketer of his own brand. And, as any budding internet video machine (over 140 million YouTube views for Block’s Gymkhana series) can tell you, a web video is hardly a web video unless it’s first been teased.
And so we bring you the video below. Yes, it’s a teaser for Block’s upcoming Gymkhana 5 video. Yes, it stars Ken Block and his Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. rally car. And, if you couldn’t tell from the screen capture above, it all takes place on a barge in San Francisco Bay. If you don’t care about any of that, perhaps you’ll be swayed to watch when we tell you it’s all set to the glorious tunes of Europe’s “The Final Countdown.”
The video is waiting for your prying eyes below. It’s 37 seconds long, and only about 10 of those show Block’s car in motion. So, um… enjoy? And stay tuned for the whole shebang on July 9.
