Mario Kart is REAL

“Welcome to Mario Kart!”

“I’mma gonna get you!”
“Here we go!”
“I got you!”

I see a lot of wacky things in my travels, so it takes a lot to surprise me. This just blew my mind with a mix of shock, incredulity and yes, a tiny bit of envy. I took these photos on a city street in the middle of the fifth largest city in Japan. Oh and incase you missed it, yes this oversized man on an undersized gocart is rockin’ a Yoshi backpack.
