DC Shoes Gymkhana FIVE: Ultimate Urban Playground; San Francisco


This 9-minute and-52 second video advertises for DC Shoes. It stars Ken Block, world-renowned for his ability to “drift” cars. If you should ever see his drifting, you would want to call your friends immediately. With a Straight Talk promo code, you can, without worrying about limits or contracts.

Against the backdrop of world-famous San Francisco, a heart-stopping journey through its streets showcases the drifting talent and skill of KenBlock, who is world famous for the art of skidding a car either on a straightaway or in turns, much like an ice skater.

Many video cameras contributed to the video, from the driver’s perspective, a helicopter, buildings, streetside, inside the car, outside the car and on objects that the car circled. The car skids its way through a closed-circuit path, careening from side to side and leaving a cloud of rubber smoke in its wake.

It is a demonstration of technical virtuosity in handling a car. Tight turns, right-angle turns, moving vehicles and jumps, all at high speed, combine to make this a very demanding course to navigate. It ends with a drifting session on a barge in San Francisco Bay to the tune of “Come Sail Away” by Styx.

For drifting fans, this thrilling nonstop adrenaline rush is a must-see.

The DC Shoes logo appears in the beginning and then again on various articles of clothing. A link to its website is shown where all of the videos can be watched. Otherwise, there is very little branding.

In the minds of drifting fans, there should be no problem remembering DC Shoes as the sponsor of this video.
