Ken Block's DiRT 3 promo in tilt shift - Click above to watch video after the jump

We don't know when tilt-shift video will be old and busted, but it isn't today. Ken Block's recent busting-through-boxes DiRT 3 Gymkhana at the Battersea power station rocked hard enough in full scale. It looks even cooler – or perhaps it's just wackier and funnier – shot with a tilt-shift lens so that it looks like a tiny Ken Block is piloting a tiny Escort knocking over tiny boxes. The only thing stranger than the images is the music, which kept us wondering when the Harajuku girls were going to appear. They don't, but the still-awesome Harajuku-free video is after the jump.

      Only strange part of that video, was the Ford logo at the end. The bean-counters at Ford can't see fit to give us an AWD car, yet spend money and time advertising this little fake fiesta built by Pipo Moteur and M-Sport... guess they spent all their money defending Ford Explorer rollover liability suits.

        Why do people like you even bother? That type of tone doesn't even remotely get people to your argument, and it might possibly push people away (sheer dickishness will do that).

      Last time I checked, the Ford Escort retired from racing around 20 years ago... This is a Focus, and I'm surprised the author didn't know...

          That's a Ford Focus WRC, not a Fiesta WRC, look at the headlights.

        Sometimes you need to be able to look past a detail and enjoy!

      Looks almost just like the game. Only thing missing are the big jumps in the middle of the course. Cool effects.

      A previous-gen Focus does NOT look like an Escort.

      Wow! I love the visual effects. I first thought that this was done with miniature cars!
