Stunt driver Ken Block drives around a Universal Studios lot in Los Angeles. After founding DC shoes and becoming a multimillionaire, Ken Block became a stunt driver. In one YouTube video, Block can be seen speeding down an empty Oakland Bay Bridge, ripping a set of tire-smoking doughnuts between two trolley cars, and seemingly breaking the laws of physics by twisting the car in mid-flight on a 90-degree turn after jumping a hill. Within 24 hours, the video was viewed more than 5 million times.
