Mario Kart 8 Commercials

Nintendo has done something we haven’t seen in a long time with three new Mario Kart 8 commercials. Remember back in the 90’s when Sega and Nintendo were going head to head with silly commercials? Things like “Genesis does what Nintendon’t.” Yeah it was stupid, but absolutely fun to watch. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed watching a video game commercial. Fortunately for Nintendo fans everywhere, that dry spell ended yesterday with these wacky videos.

“Boomerangs, they come back…”

Upside Down Test

Super Horn Test

Finally! A way to stop that loathsome blue bundle of destruction. Being out front has always been one of the most dangerous positions in the Mario Kart series. Sure you want to win races, but all the amazing power-ups go to the losers in your rearview mirror. Now, you’ll have a chance to stop those cheating bastards from taking away your podium finish.

Did you enjoy the Mario Kart 8 commercials? Which one was your favorite? Let us know in the comments below.

Mario Kart 8 races its way in stores and on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U on May 30.
