Megaupload’s Kim Dotcom Races Kimi Raikkonen [Video]

Now that Kim Dotcom has regained access to the Internet, he can finally get back to work.

One of his priorities is obviously to show that he and Megaupload are innocent, but there are some side projects to take care of as well.

In a few weeks he will launch his personal website, which he promised will be very exciting.

But there’s more.

Posting a video of him and Megaupload colleague Finn Batato racing Formula 1 driver Kimi Raikkonen on the Nürburgring for example.

Not your average home-video, as it involved 30 cameras, a 100+ crew, 2 helicopters, 2 camera cars and one fixed wing aircraft.

And of course the video wouldn’t be complete without a professionally produced soundtrack.

Kim posted some more details on YouTube. (via / via)

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.
