All we have to say is, thank goodness this didn’t exist when we were kids, or else we would have never gone outside. EVER. Then again, if it meant playing this all day long, we’d probably be okay with that.
We’re sure many of you remember Mario Kart parties; playing against your friends, racing around the tracks, hurling shells and obscenities at one another until the wee hours of the morning.
And we’re also pretty sure you loved Star Wars as well; binge watching the original trilogy, playing with those awesome toys, and wishing you could pilot an X-Wing or the Millennium Falcon.
Well YouTube user Dark Pixel Digital has taken two of our favorite childhood memories and mashed them together into one seamless video, The Kart Awakens! The result is both impressive and super fun to watch. It’s all the old Mario Kart characters racing each other, but now they’re atop spaceships from the Star Wars universe traveling around the galaxy through hyperspace.
The video is as fun as it sounds, so go ahead and relive a fantasy version of your childhood. Just try not to be too depressed when you have to come back to reality.
