Ford Snowkhana

Watch Santa, Darth Vader, and the Minions Have Fun in Snowkhana

Posted by

Each winter, Ford releases a special Snowkhana video to wish everyone happy holidays. No, that’s not a typo. This isn’t the usual Ken Block Gymkhana video, but a tribute to those videos made with toys, sound effects, and a healthy dose of humor. This year, we have Santa along with Darth Vader, Minions, and Buzz Lightyear.

Usually these clips feature only die-cast cars, but Ford got fancy this time around and has a real Ford Focus RS and the real Santa Claus. Of course it’s the real Santa. You don’t think some mall Santa is drifiting through the snow on his off days, do you?

It starts off with Santa dreaming of the Ford Focus RS as he snoozes by the fire. There’s also a die-cast Ford up to its own mischief. The toy Santa wanders out the door and then he’s suddenly real with a real Ford in real snow doing the whole crazy Ken Block thing.

Meanwhile, his die-cast buddy runs into all sorts of familiar faces. You’ll see Han, Chewie, Woody, and Buzz Lightyear doing a split across a couple of tractor trailers.

Back in the real world, Santa does donuts around Darth Vader who has lost the ability to use the force. The police are none too happy with the antics of our drifting Santa and give chase to no avail.

Santa eludes the police and ends up right back home, asleep by the fireplace, dreaming of that Focus RS. Here’s hoping whatever you’re dreaming of ends up under the tree for you this Christmas.
