Real World Mario Kart Re-Enactors Race Through a Shopping Mall

If you feel you need a bit of inspiration this Thursday, perhaps knowing that out there in London, a group of people organized to successfully re-enact a Mario Kart race through a Westfield Mall during regular business hours, banana-peel-induced spin-outs included — that just might be motivation enough to keep fighting the good fight until the weekend.


The video clip is a pleasure, set as it is to the perfect N64 music and sound effects as these dedicated, costumed racers zip through this shopping center on go-karts. It especially warms the heart to know that police and security didn’t hassle these fun-loving performers, who made it a point not to hit or interfere with any innocent shoppers. The Evening Standard reported, according to a Westfield spokesman: “As the stunt was intended to be humorous, and the centre was open but the retail stores were not trading at the time with a small number of people on foot, the participants were permitted to continue.”
