Ken Block minifies Battersea

Video: Another look at Block’s power station Gymkhana, by way of miniaturisation…

Before you anonymously vent your brain's most fevered put-downs via the comments box below, we agree: there is a lot of Ken Block on the Internet.

What can we say? He gets around. Mostly sideways. Earlier this year he was at Battersea power station for the launch of Dirt3, doing some slidey things with a 300bhp rally-spec Ford Focus and making TG staffer Dan Read quite unwell.

Turns out that little drifty extravaganza was also filmed using something called a ‘tilt-shift' lens. We are unsure of what this lens does, but judging by the effect created in this here video, it miniaturises EVERYTHING. Like a massive space-gun operated by an over-zealous but conservatively-sized comic-book villain, intent on finally towering over the world.

Anyway, have a watch. It's quite dandy.

Now share it...
