    While I think he can control the car well doing certain things, I am hesitant to call him a good driver. The dude can't race for ****.

    And he's still a tool.

    I dont personally care for him, pastrana, mira or any other want to be rally huge sponsored energy drink guys. It isnt what ruined the subaru, personally what ruined the subaru is finally the mileage/age/value of the bugeye but it is not a help either.

    His control is pretty impressive. I gotta say I was quite bored with the most recent ones though, it was just more of the same. I like that this one had a cool location and some more interesting sequences. In particular, the big jump was cool. Not just cause it was a big jump, but also because they showed all different angles including a suspension cam and one in the cabin.

    How many more donuts can he do, and people still care?

    It was 5minutes worth of donuts stretched into 10 minutes. Only cool thing was the sideways jump

    I admire his ability to drive the way he does, but I agree, the 50th time is boring.

    Yesh. I was staring in boredom at the last couple vids I think. This time I focused on the scenery and found that aspect to be a bit refreshing

    Lucky yes, a 300k+ car and an endless budget, but to say anyone can drive like he does is dead wrong. He has a skill that most people don't, the foot work, the timing, the precision. Would you trust yourself to do donuts around a guy doing a wheelie on a dirt bike, hell no. This is worse than watching a NASCAR race and saying " I know how to drive a car, I could totally win one of those races if given the chance " wrong.

    There are so many Block haters out there, especially on this site.

    I don't hate the guy, but watching 10 minutes of donuts gets wearysome after a while. He certainly has talent, it's just too bad we don't see any race wins out of him.

    These are marketing videos. This is a mega budget super commercial for the upcoming Focus ST and its friggin awesome. I'd much rather watch this than watch some average run o' the mill turd of a car commercial.

    Sure the only thing that Ken Blocks Focus and a Focus ST have in common are the Ford badges, but most people are too dumb to realize that. They see a bad ass Focus tearing it up in one of the most iconic cities in the world and they say to themselves, " OMG I must buy the Ford Focus ST right now"

    This is Genious marketing. 10million youtube hits in 48hrs. Don't tell me that it didn't work for Subaru with Gymkhana 2. Subaru got a huge boost in popularity from that video.

    Except for the fact that Ken drives a Fiesta, not a Focus...

    Don't believe me? Check out 0:22 of the video.
