The word ‘extravagant’ has found a new home, and it’s in DC Shoes founder Ken Block’s playbook.

Block’s first Gymkhana video, which we showed you in November last year, was enough to make even a Buckingham Palace guard guffaw, but this second video, revealed today, is a whole new animal.

Where the first video focused almost entirely on the maniacal drifting and powerslides Block executed in his GD WRX STI, this new video, featuring the all-new 2009 Subaru WRX STI, brings a new level of theatrics to the game.

Water balloons strewn across the track, powerslides over fluorescent light bars, an exploding semi truck trailer, and plenty more – this vid has it all. Check it out below.
