‘Mario Kart’ Comes Alive In This Incredibly Fun Skateboarding Video

If you’ve ever wondered what skateboarding (well, technically longboarding) might look like in the world of Super Mario, today is your lucky day. This incredible video takes what would normally be a pretty average longboard session and turns it into a thrilling joyride through the land of Mario, thanks to some amazing post-production effects. My only complaint is Rainbow Road fails to make an appearance.

It’s basically scientifically proven that adding Mario Kart to pretty much anything makes that thing infinitely cooler (here’s more evidence), so it’s pretty surprising that we aren’t blessed with these kinds of videos more often. Get on that, Internet people.

For a deeper look into how this masterpiece was made, here’s a behind-the-scenes edition.
