Video: Real Life Mario Kart

What can you do if you live in in provincial Nara in Japan, if you”re a 57-year old Japanese entrepreneur with a penchant for cars, and if you need a cool hobby? You can drive a real-life Mario Kart, just like Satoshi Imanaka, who is regularly dressing up as Mario and driving around town with his 7 friends on karts, does.

Needless to say, his friends are dressed up as Princess Peach, Wario and other characters from the game. The 50cc karts reach a top speed of 60km/h.

In the video embedded below (in Japanese), you can see the team driving around town and giving away snacks and other things to school kids:
