I don't remember the Princess waving in flags in Mario Kart, if I remember correctly she was always the one red shelling my arse as Yoshi, but apart from that one little misconception, this Mario Kart tribute video, shot in Brisbane, is on the money.
The video was shot by MediaHeroesAU, to celebrate the Australian 20th anniversary of the original Mario Kart's release. It's pretty well made. Also — there's something about that music. A lot of current Nintendo fans were brought into the fold by Mario Kart 64, but all my best memories of the game come from Super Mario Kart, which is still the best version if you ask me.
I don't think anyone was asking me.
Anyway, while we're here, I have a couple of questions. First off: favourite version of Mario Kart? And second, favourite character? I'm going to go with Yoshi.
