Mario Kart Love Song Video

If you've ever played Mario Kart--on any Nintendo system--you'll understand the hype behind blinktwice4y's newest youtube video. Geeks, gamers, and nerds love him and his heartfelt lyrics combined with Jason Mraz-like voice. The song is a tribute to all Mario Kart lovers. For me, the song adds a whole new level of characterization to Mario. All along, it just seemed like he was protecting the princess out of civic duty. But now, I'll forever think of the two as "star"-crossed lovers. Nintendo should make a tv ad from the song with gameplay scenes of Mario and the Princess racing together.

It's a wonder how the song sounds like a serious (and almost broken-hearted) love song, yet can bring smiles to any Mario Kart fan because of the ingenious lyrcs:

You be my princess
I'll be your toad
I'll follow behind you
on rainbow road
Protect you from red shells
wherever we go
I promise.

Noone will touch us
if we pick up a star
If you spin out
you can ride in my car
When we slide together
we generate sparks
in our wheels and our hearts

The finish line
is just around the bend
I'll pause this game
so our love will never end
Let's go again

The blue shell is coming
so I'll go ahead
If you hang behind
it'll hit me instead
but never look back
cause I'm down but not dead
I'll catch up to you

Don't worry about
Bowser or DK
Eat this glowing mushroom
and they'll all fade away


to the mushroom cup
and the flower cup
and the star cup
and the reverse cup
