Ken Block Makes Your Jaw DropBL News
The phrase “Thing of beauty” doesn’t do this video justice.
Turning San Francisco into your own personal rally car track is epic enough (just how did they get the streets that deserted?!). Capturing the run on over 100 cameras? That’s just icing on the cake. That’s the crew just rubbing your face in the awesomeness of this event.
Photographically alone, it’s a feat of epic proportions. Ken’s crazy skills with that Fiesta notwithstanding, acquiring footage from all those cameras as he streaks through SF is kind of a big deal. All of it has to be ingested, logged, tagged, and then edited. That’s the truly incredible part – someone sat down and cut all that together.
Excuse my while I pick my jaw up from the floor.
Speaking of cool, there’s a scene where Travis Pastrana does a cameo on his dirt bike in the video above. BL’s own Emotive Image (www.facebook.com/emotiveimage) was shooting X-Games just a little while ago, and saw Travis Pastrana rockin’ some of our long Nikon glass.
Check out the video and watch for Travis’ cameo!
