HOT FOR WORDS - HOT FOR GYMKHANA

It only took a few months after Billy Mays passed away (btw: my favorite Halloween costume of 2009) for DC Shoes to find another spokesmodel to blow your mind. Hot for Words – or Marina Orlova – the Russian born Philologist who has been providing the origins of English words over the internet for at least a few years now.

In this video, Hot for Words will straighten your crankshaft while educating you on the ins, and outs, of Gymkhana and the now one-year old, groundbreaking, DC Gymkhana video. She also does pretty well interviewing DC’s Ken Block on Gymkhana TWO
