Hot For Words host Marina - Click above to watch the video
Can you believe it's been one solid year since we first saw Ken Block's eye-popping, mind-numbing, death-defying Gymkhana video? How time flies when you're hooning it at 11/10s.To celebrate this monumental moment in the history of car-related YouTubeage, DC Shoes (Mr. Block's extreme sports clothing company) has gone ahead and put together an "investigation" into the whole Gymkhana phenomenon. And if you can get past (or get into, take your pick) Marina's highly modified assets, the video's loaded with some good stuff.

For instance, Block never intended to start a cult of Gymkhana. He'd built up a 530 hp Subaru WRX to compete in a Gymkhana event that was canceled leaving Ken with a car but no race. And get this -- over 24,000,000 people have watched the original Gymkhana video -- that's more folks than have watch all of Harmony Korine's last three movies, times two! And if you don't like this video, hop on over to 0-60mag.com, where they've not only got the Hot For Words clip, but a full seven pages of Ken Block/Gymkhana related footage. One hoon to rule them all indeed. Full video, after the jump.

      she, on the whole, would be far more palatable without all the deliberate flailing.


      or should I say "tolerable".

      either way, I feel like I was watching a punchline without the advantage of a joke.

      Hate vapid useless plastic chicks like this.
      They are amusing when you are a teenager, but when you get older they are just plain annoying.

        And there's always guys who want them.

      I seem to remember her being a little less horrifying.

      Has she gotten worse looking?
      • 5 Years Ago
      OMG she's far to annoying for me to suffer more than 30 seconds of the vid. If there's worthwhile content, I'll never see it.

      her hand gestures look all forced and like she has to concentrate on them and her accent is really annoying. I would worry about having my eye poked out by one of her gangly fingernails while she was talking.
      anyway, whatever, just more junk to cram on the internet.

      Talk about a sex drive killer.

      Urge to kill rising....

      Wow is she irritating. At least the clips between her parts were enjoyable.
      • 5 Years Ago
      the only thing more annoying than her voice was the lack of any real information in a 5+minute video

      if your gonnna say "Ken" 4,000 times, work on saying it without your unattractive accent
      "keeyon"

      (maybe i'm just extra cranky tonight)

        I agree with you Jim. Her accent is really annoying.

      It's a man, baby...YEAH!
      • 5 Years Ago
      I couldn't watch the video. Her cattle-prod up the arse looks were enough to scare me away.
      • 5 Years Ago

        • 5 Years Ago
