[Video] Safe at work – Gymkhana parody uses very small budget image

This is the Car Bros’ Gympkhana – a very comedic take on the Gymkhana series that has made Ken Block a worldwide star. And yeah, that bonkers 650 hp Fiesta has now morphed into a beaten old Civic wagon.

This humble Civic wagon is not what you call motorsport material – but that didn’t matter to the crazy people from Car Bros as they decided to make their own Gymkhana video – and maybe teach Ken Block a lesson or two in the process. Since it’s a well done Gymkhana parody it has all the necessary and traditional ingredients – but they also added in their own contribution. And since they’re crazy, the extra stuff includes some Grand Theft Auto references, R/C cars, as well as a drone that has gone haywire and goes on a rampage attacking the driver.

This is certainly not the first satirical take on the Hoonigan actions, but it’s one of the best out there – though it was clearly made on a shoe-string budget. Still, the camera work is well done, the editing too and they were even “professional” enough to give the third-gen Civic at the front of the action a split personality – it can go from the roaring howl of a naturally-aspirated V8 engine to the blowing whistle of a supercharged machine. You should keep this one for repeat views, because just like the best parodies out there you’ll find hidden gems you didn’t spot during the first view.
