Ken Block wanted to shoot Gymkhana Nine, his latest stunt video, to be shot in Australia — mainly because it was being done in conjunction with Forza Horizon 3, a games that’s actually set in Australia.
Sadly, the Australian Police said no. They wanted none of it.
But they went ahead and shot the thing elsewhere.
And this is the making of that video.
Why post this on Kotaku? Well, it’s pretty cool for one. Secondly, it’s actually based on stunts you can do in Forza Horizon 3.
Personally, I think we’ve all been robbed. Would have loved to see some of these wild-ass set-pieces shot and filmed in noteworthy Australian locations. I’m sure the police had their reasons but boo. I am booing this decision.
