It's not even a modern Mario Kart, for the love of god.
Bill Shorten, as it turns out, made a trip recently to Perth. As part of the publicity tour, he stopped by a couple of local radio stations to try and appeal to the younger demographic.
So what better way to get in with the kids than playing Mario Kart? So 96FM sat Bill down at a SNES Mini, gave the Labor leader a controller, and one of Bill's staffers popped it up as an Instagram story (which has since expired).
But something's not right here.
You know, it wouldn't have killed Bill to get panned at Mario Kart by the AI. Everyone else has at some stage. It's a rite of passage.
But to fake it and wander around a track solo? That's a bit sad.
Thanks Pedestrian, Press Start!
