VIDEO: Ken Block’s Gymkhana FIVE San Francisco driving stunt goes viral

Yep, that's happening.

Here’s a crazy video of a professional driver turning the streets of San Francisco into his personal playground to get your week started.

Professional stunt driver Ken Block starred once again in the fifth installment of DC Shoes’ Gymkhana campaign, which features him performing a series of unbelievable car tricks in a number of cities.

This time, Block took to San Francisco where he literally drove circles around those little cable cars that climb halfway to the stars. Block and his team had to work with the city to secure a course for four days and ensure that no oblivious drivers or pedestrians wandered onto it, potentially wreaking havoc for everyone involved.

It’s hard to tear your eyes from Block’s death-defying urban stunts, which would explain why the video has gone viral with more than 19 million views in just a week.

Block can be seen taking sharp curves at more than 100 mph and going airborne over San Francisco’s infamous city hills. Professional dirtbiker Travis Pastrana makes a cameo appearance coming uncomfortably close with Block’s car. Take a look at the video below.
