A video that opens with a camel, a hawk and a cheetah might suggest a desert theme, but with its myriad locations, Ken Block's Gymkhana EIGHT: Ultimate Exotic Playground; Dubai feels much more like a race around the world. Colored by Luis Silva of Incendio, the video introduces Ken Block’s Ford Focus RS RX. Silva’s work on Gymkhana EIGHT, which has racked up more than 13 million views, involved changing up the looks to evolve with each new locale and stunt. “Dubai is clearly a character in the narrative,” said Silva. “We wanted to take advantage of this vibrant city, while emphasizing how Ken and this amazing car operated within it.”
