And here we thought Nintendo commissioned the real-life Mario Kart kart just so its existence could tease us perpetually. The real reason is so some lucky person out there can own this thing; a GameStop patron to be exact.

The kart will be given to a select PowerUp Rewards member. Eligible members simply need to purchase or trade something in during the month of December to be entered into the drawing, either in-store or online. Good luck, because nothing really ties the living room together like a giant, life-sized Mario Kart prop.

... What? You would put it in the garage? Psh.
