If you’re a regular reader of the High Speed Stuff blog then you already know that I’m a huge fan of the Ken Block videos that seem to keep popping up on YouTube recently. These videos always get my adrenaline pumping and, in addition to making me not believe my own eyes, they always make me smile, too. Well, today’s example actually made me laugh out loud.
I’ll keep it brief: Ken Block attended a party in the UK for the launch of a new video game called DiRT 2 — an off-road racing game that pays tribute to former WRC driver Colin McRae. During the event, Ken takes a few of the “big-talking gamers” on a wild ride while an in-car camera and microphone records the fun. And let me tell you, this is some funny stuff! Be sure to watch it with the sound up, because the music, the exhaust note and, of course, the screams and (censored) cursing of the passengers is completely worth it!
So, are you ready for this? If you want to skip the setup, then jump to the 1:18 mark. That’s where the good stuff starts. I have a feeling you’re going to want to watch it twice, anyway.
I hope it made you laugh, too.
