Ken Block and his tuned Ford Fiesta along with DC Shoes have teamed up once again to present the new video for Gymkhana FOUR, which is definitely 4 the win! After the previous three were such a hit, it was going to be tough to make the Gymkhana FOUR different from the rest. However, they succeeded with the help of director Ben Conrad using pyrotechnics, crazy stunts, and insane tricks in the fourth installment. A cameo from the Epic Meal Time guys is also seen about halfway through and at the end. Bringing it all together are memories from Jaws, Back to the Future, Zombieland, and Slumdog Millionaire. Did we forget to mention the gorillas and Segways also in Gymkhana FOUR?
