Someone had to do it: Mario Kart IRL

I don't know about you, but when I'm driving, my mind often moves to one of three games in heavy traffic: Ridge Racer (powersliding!), Sega Rally (forget slow people, just drive in the grass!), or Mario Kart (damn, I wish I had some bananas right about now). Of course, if I was Mario Kart-ing it, I wouldn't wear the Mario outfit and drive a go-kart.

A French dork named Remi Gaillard would, though. Remi dressed up in Mario's overalls, slapped on a mustache, gassed up his kart, and hit the open road. After a perfect start (1 and 2 and boom before the 3), he gets his power-up: bananas. Watch as real-world drivers run over his banana tosses. Sadly, they're quite a bit less effective in real life.
