Well, okay, for our younger audience members: Super Mario Kart is like Mario Kart Wii, but older. Europe's been on a roll recently, first with the Hanabi Festival granting Castlevania: Rondo...

Now this is an old one. How many of you can remember this classic ad, utilizing the "SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY!" voiceover guy? Did you know that the karts found in Mario Kart have two speeds?

We're all anticipating Mario Kart's release on the Wii. It may still be a while before we can fulfill all our Go-Karting (or should we say motorcycling) needs, but at least we can have a good laugh in the meantime. That's why we recommend that you watch this parody of the franchise's SNES original,...
