I will let you guys in on a little secret. I actually got to watch Gymkhana SEVEN early at an event over the weekend. Then again, I posted about it on instagram and twitter so I guess its not so secret. If you follow us (follow us! @motorworldhype on twitter and instagram!) then you already know how I feel about the latest Gymkhana flick. If you don’t then I will give you a quick summary so you can go ahead and start watching below. This video is easily the best Gymkhana video yet! The production value is through the roof! They filmed at places in LA that most would have thought to be impossible!
One of my favorite things about Gymkhana SEVEN besides the production value is the nods and in-jokes about Los Angeles. Ken visits famous locations, recreates moments in recent LA pop culture, and has some fun with another Los Angeles staple: Lowriders. Its all really funny and entertaining to watch. I think many people forget that Ken Block actually “writes” these videos himself. That might sound weird that he “writes” for videos that have no dialogue but all the nods and jokes I mentioned were straight from his head! Personally I don’t think the guy gets enough credit for his creative side (speaking of, keep an eye out for a few easter eggs!). Anyhow, in summary Gymkhana SEVEN is a marvelous, obnoxious, maniacal, beautiful, love letter to Los Angeles. You owe yourself to watch it below!
