Mom gives her minivan the Ken Block treatment in 'Momkhana'

By Deeq on 20 Feb 2015 in Motoring, Other blogs

Hang on, kids, Mom’s about to smoke all four tires and do some epic drifting on the way to school today. Seat belts? Try harnesses.
In a near frame-by-frame remake of the Internet-busting Ken Block Gymkhana videos, Famous Footwear and producers at Shareability have created “Momkhana,” a three-minute exercise in bad parenting masquerading as a shoe commercial.
 
Not really –- settle down, social services workers — since the children in the fast and furious short film were never in the running car.
Famous Footwear, a national discount chain, is taking a cue from other companies that are trying to shake up their marketing and propel themselves to viral video glory.
 
Executives at the St. Louis-based retailer, on hearing the idea of a stunt-driving suburban mom in a tricked-out minivan, reacted with a “combination of frightened and excited laughter,” said Nick Reed, Shareability co-founder.
 

They gave it the green light, so to speak, and Momkhana was born with Shauna Duggins, a mom in real life, behind the wheel of a 550-horsepower vehicle that’s probably never been used for carpooling. Donuts, slow motion and aerial shots ensued.
Duggins, a veteran Hollywood stunt coordinator and stunt double for Jennifer Garner and other A-listers, burned circles through some neighborhoods just north of Los Angeles for the video, wearing stylish sneakers, of course.
