These parody videos prove that you don’t need a big budget and an awesome car to create a killer Gymkhana video.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If that's the case, then Ken Block should feel extremely flattered by all of the Gymkhana parody videos floating around the Internet. Ranging from pure garbage to awesome, with almost all of them starring ridiculous cars that Block probably wouldn't touch with a 10-foot barge pole, if you've ever dreamed of making your own budget Gymkhana video, then you're going to want to check out the following videos for inspiration.
There's a great chance that this is the only stop motion Gymkhana parody video in existence. That right there, plus the inherent creativity of this video, earns it a spot on the list.
It's almost tough to believe that the 1990 Subaru Legacy Wagon (with over 200,000 miles on it) in this video didn't break down during filming. This video isn't a spot-on parody, but it does feature a Subaru and a lot of drifting.
Unlike the two videos before it, this one more or less sticks to the Gymkhana formula, combining off-road and street driving elements to create a pretty entertaining video. When's the last time you saw someone hooning a 1990 Chevy Astro?
This video is a near spot-on recreation of the antics from the now-legendary Gymkhana series. The video stars a 1986 Ford Fiesta Ghia/motorized billboard for DC and Monster. There's a gratuitous amount of slow motion, hooning and green paint.
The previous video featured higher production values and more DC logos, but it is nowhere near as action packed as this parody. The 2004 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS gets a thorough workout in this video, dodging paintballs, fireworks and even crashing through a trailer. Ken Block would be proud.
