Luigi isn't just a jerk in Mario Kart 8, he's also started drive-by shelling cosplayers. How cruel!

The Luigi Death Stare has sort of played itself out now, but I still rank it as the best gaming meme of 2014 so far. The latest episode of YouTube show 'Kids React' is dedicated to the meme, and some of them reacted pretty much the exact same way I reacted when I first saw it. The kid in the yellow t-shirt? That was basically me.
I'm calling it (and judging by comments/Twitter/Facebook most of you are too). It's done, guys. It was a fun ride, but it shone too brightly and burned out too quickly. THAT SAID, it deserves a more fitting end than Luigi's own year, which just kinda... fizzed out. It deserves a viking funeral.
Remember this guy? Of course you do. How could you forget a glare so withering?
Luigi's Death Stare is everywhere right now -- people are in love with Luigi's cold, menacing gaze in Mario Kart. This fascination inevitably means there's lots of fan-art and hilarious GIFs floating around of Luigi on the internet. Let's take a look, shall we?
If you'd told me a while back that the best part of Mario Kart 8 would be Luigi's cold, unyielding stare, I wouldn't have believed you. But, here we are, and there's Luigi's icy death gaze, and the truth is it is actually my favourite part of the game.
