If you think you’re a good driver, I bet aren’t as good as Ken Block.

This video is the 4th in a series of “Hollywood megamercials” (extended-length, high production value, video commercials used for viral web marketing campaigns) for DC Shoes featuring drifting-extraordinaire driver Ken Block.  GymKhana FOUR is an energetic romp around the Universal Studios Back Lot that is beyond entertaining and death-defying. I wonder how many tires they went through for this shoot on Ken’s 2011 Ford Fiesta WRC-based super race car.  Aside from Ken’s highly-skilled stunt driving, my favorite character is the guy dressed up as King Kong. I’m not sure if I’d rather be riding the Segway or standing on the ladder. You choose.
