With rumors flying that there's a new Gymkhana video dropping on April 22nd, 2014, Hoonigan Racing Division's Ken Block has decided to comment on the rumors himself. The project, called Footkhana, isn't actually Gymkhana SEVEN, but instead, a collaboration piece from Castrol, combining one of the most popular sports on the planet (football, or, as it's known in America, soccer) with the most popular driving video series of all time (Block's Gymkhana franchise).
Block's partner for this video is global football sensation Neymar Jr., who is regarded as one of the best players on the planet and a perfect partner for going head-to-head in this video of foot skills versus car skills.
"Yes, I do have a Gymkhana-style video dropping on Tuesday next week," said Block. "We worked with one of the best football strikers in the world, Mr. Neymar Jr., so I had my work cut out for me. But, I was up to the challenge and did some accuracy placement stuff with the car and my driving lines where I was hitting the footballs into the net. That was actually a fun and new concept for me. I really think the fans will enjoy it."
Can't wait until Tuesday, April 22nd, to see the full video? Whet your appetite with this short trailer on Castrol's YouTube page showcasing some of both Neymar Jr.'s and Block's moves:
