Blink and you'll miss Ken Block in new Gymkhana video

Explosions, hooks and slides and the destruction of fluorescent light bulbs--all in the name of gaining attention for DC Shoes?

Noted rally driver and DC co-founder Ken Block slides his way through Gymkhana Two, a high-performance sequel to his popular Gymkhana Practice video.

Block maneuvers a 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI, custom-built by Crawford Performance, around the Port of Los Angeles.

Gymkhana requires drivers to push their limits of car control while juking cars around a series of cones, 180-degree, 360-degree and figure-eight turns and other obstacles using extreme acceleration, braking and drifting.

Block's car is fitted with BFGoodrich g-Force KDW tires, carbon fiber, a custom graphics package, body mods and custom parts.

In the video, Block swings the car sideways more than he travels straight, knocks a goo-filled balloon out of a dummy's hand and slides under an exploding trailer.

Pretty impressive for an infomercial.

DC team rider and MTV funnyman Rob Dyrdek makes a cameo in the video.
