Kim Dotcom of MegaUpload fame -- and now infamy -- certainly knew how to live larger than ever.
The once zillionaire certainly knew how to have his very own track day. Not only did he rent out the entire 'Ring, but Dotcom also made sure to hire Kimi Raikkonen to join him and his buddy, Finn Batato.
Though Kim says the final edit was seized by the FBI, this is one version that made it through the raid.
Kim Dotcom, Kimi Raikkonen and Finn Batato on the Nürburgring Norschleife with three highly modified Mercedes Benz AMG CLK DTM supercars. A fun day on the most famous race track in the world. This video shows a full lap around the ring.
It took 20 laps to get all the shots for this video. It's a homage to the Nurburgring, the CLK DTM and Kimi Raikkonen, one of the best drivers in the world.
I DID NOT WIN against Kimi. I never could. We had to remove the air from his tires to keep up. And even then it was impossible :-)
I used to play Forza and Need for Speed on Xbox Live. Those games inspired me to create a video that looks like the replay of a perfect lap on the Ring. I know it isn't perfect, but I tried.
The production involved 30 cameras, 100+ crew, 2 helicopters, 2 camera cars and one fixed wing aircraft.
The song "Take me away" was produced by Kim Dotcom and Printz Board.
P.S. The final edit was seized by the FBI during the Megaupload raid.
It will be uploaded as soon as it returns (if ever).
The current version has a few problems and no color correction. Sorry.
Thank you Kimi Raikkonen.
