Ken Block’s Gymkhana series has given us a lot of incredible hooning memories over the past years. None of them, though, have been able to incorporate the sport of football into the mix. Well, there’s always a time for firsts and recently, the curiousity of seeing football and Gymkhana together in one video has finally been answered.
As expected, Block and his trusty Ford Fiesta RXC are part of the stunt. Joining them for this particular video, though, is no other than FC Barcelona and Brazil star Neymar Jr.
To be honest, we were left scratching our heads on the entire purpose of the video, other than to highlight the things Block and Neymar do best. First, Neymar tries to score goals with Block’s Fiesta serving as the goalkeeper. After that, it was Block’s turn to do the kicking, or at least a variation of it with his Fiesta RXC.
From there, it was just Block doing a whole lot tire smoking and Neymar performing his impressionable football skills. In the end, the two settled for a 3-3 tie in the "try-to-score-a-goal" competition, but like a lot of people who’ve seen the video, we were left more confused as to the point of the whole thing.
The stunts were definitely cool, but it hardly painted the right picture to make the story interesting.
