Mario Kart characters have taken over Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive. The video may be a year too late, Mario’s mustache is no match for Ryan Gosling’s five o’clock shadow, and Kavinsky is nowhere to be heard, but the faux trailer is still good.
Kart also stars Princess Peach (as Carey Mulligan’s Irene), Luigi (Bryan Cranston’s Shannon), Wario (Albert Brooks’ Bernie Rose), and Waluigi (Oscar Isaac’s Standard Gabriel). “Did you have any idea that there’d be a Yoshi?” Mario asks Daisy (Christina Hendricks’ Blanche). “They said there’d be another cart to lighting us,” she responds. That exchange and the elevator makeout/Bowser knockout scene are pure gold (in the form of coins, that is). Maybe this film will actually receive an Oscar nod.
Let’s-a go! Watch the video below:
