Travis Pastrana spoofs his DC Shoes boss Ken Block in new videoTue, 21 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0700
We love a little friendly interteam rivalry--especially when it involves driver Travis Pastrana and his boss at DC Shoes, Ken Block.
Gymkhana ace Block released a video in February featuring his new livery for the DC Shoes WRC Ford Fiesta and his 2011 schedule of events. The hard-rock-and-techno-scored video shows Block in race gear, with his car and a few femme fatales in black vinyl and other DC gear.
Block recently teased Pastrana during his Gymkhana Grid event for not knowing how to turn right. It was obviously a shot at Pastrana's NASCAR aspirations.
Pastrana got his revenge on Tuesday with a video of his 2011 Subaru WRX STI, sporting the orange-and-black livery of Boost Mobile. Pastrana spoofs Block, using the classic formula of girls plus cars equals massive views. But Pastrana forgoes the young models of Block's video for some of the more mature variety.
At one point, the video notes: "The combined age of models, 199 years."
The video also shows Pastrana's schedule then claims, "Busier than Block."
The grannies gyrate as the music plays while Pastrana jumps in and out of frame with various comical looks. It's all in good fun with some cool cars thrown in, so it's all good to us. Check out the video above.
