Let's-a go!

Easily the most recognizable video game character of all time, Mario has come a long way from his early days as a jumping character in 1981’s Donkey Kong. As Nintendo’s unofficial mascot, Mario is almost certainly priceless to the video game company as his many iterations and franchises continue to grow and expand. The latest installment, Super Mario Odyssey, swiftly became Nintendo’s fastest-selling Mario game ever following its release at the end of 2017.

But to those who grew up on the N64 back in the ’90s, perhaps one Mario franchise remains the most dear of all: Mario Kart. The fast-paced racing game featured some of Nintendo’s most beloved characters and indeed still provides entertainment in many a frat house today.

But now, thanks to a cool promotion by Google, you can turn your commute into Mario Kart on your own phone in real time… just don’t get too carried away while driving!
