‘Donkey Kong’ Gets Real in New Short

- 10-28-11Cool Stuff, Funny Videos, Videogames Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Proving that there’s nothing more frightening than a gorilla-looking man dressed only in a tie and diaper who kidnaps your girl, G4 brings us their latest thriller short inspired by classic Nintendo games. This one is “Kart Driver” and it’s a spin on the Scorsese classic Taxi Driver, but based on Donkey Kong. Big props goes to Drew Daywalt and Stephen Johnson, not just for combining the aesthetic of the two very different things it’s inspired by, but for finding a real life location that so perfectly looks like the scene of a Donkey Kong game. Bravo!

Let’s roll the clip.

Mario Kart in Real Life

Once you have a driver’s License you have that feeling of freedom, being able to travel as much or as little as you want. You only come to realize that driving isn’t always the nice privilege that everyone thinks it is when your stuck in the middle of a traffic jam. Instead of having a bout of road rage and going all smash happy on the car ahead of you wouldn’t it be nice let of some steam? If your French prankster Rémi Gaillard then all you do is throw on some suspenders, buy some bananas and take out your “aggression” in your very own ‘Mario Kart’ race.

Start your engines

Taking Mario Kart and turning it into Remi Kart, this turns into a version of the classic game that, if this was a real game, you’d want to try. Weaving in and out of actual traffic actually throwing banana peels under cars looks like a blast. With Remi’s motto C’est en faisant n’importe quoi qu’on devient n’importe qui (“It’s by doing whatever that one becomes whomever”) it’s easy to why this guy ‘allegedly’ has 911 million views of all his videos combined.

You have not obtained true pop culture status until an idiom (a statement that has meaning beyond the words themselves) has been named based on you. And it is about time that video games got their due!

Some of the ones listed below are pure gold, and I think it is up to us to make them as popular as we can – I for one will try to use at least one a day in conversation.

Thanks to Dorkly.com for the pics.

Watch Out for Koopa Troopas on Super Mario Avenue

How do you say “so freaking cool” in Spanish? Apparently it’s “Avenida de Super Mario Bros.”

Residents in a neighborhood in Zaragoza, Spain, voted online to name the streets of their future residential project after video games. Residents say “Super Mario Bros. Avenue” will be the first such street in the world, and CNN reports that streets named after Sonic the Hedgehog, The Legend of Zelda and Space Invaders are in the works.

Nintendo representatives were on hand for the unveiling of the street name. This year marks Super Mario’s 25th anniversary.

The upcoming residential project, Arcosur, will consist of residences for people ages 20 to 35 who want to own their first home. The president of Arcosur’s future neighborhood association claims that streets named after video games reflect the age and interests of the tenants.

Sounds like this neighborhood could use some Mario Kart bike lanes, no?

Bananas in Your Bike Lane: Mario Kart Takes Over Portland

Super Mario Kart

Admit it – sometimes you drive or bike around town making vrooom-vrooom noises and imagining that there are blue sparks shooting out of your vehicle. Portland, Oregon, is giving you daydreamers a chance to get your Mario Kart on like Donkey Kong.

An unknown artiste has painted Mario Kart items onto the asphalt of Portland’s bike lanes on N. Williams Ave. Bananas, stars and mushrooms are well represented. Anyone want to get a group together to petition for Rainbow Road?

The video below describes the new road decoration. God bless local newscasts.
