Miyamoto in a life-sized Mario Kart makes my day

Shigeru Miyamoto was already in California to attend tonight’s Spike Video Game Awards, so he took some time out from his trip to…go to the mall?

The legendary game maker is shown in the photo above behind the wheel of a IRL-sized Mario Kart at the Westfield Topanga mall in Canoga, California.  He showed up yesterday to check out the custom work by West Coast Customs, made to celebrate the release of Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS.

Two things:

1. There’s a Topanga mall? Topanga?

2. If I were at the mall, out to get some shitty Sbarro or something, I would have freaked the fuck out if I ran into Shigeru Miyamoto. I bet that happened yesterday.
