Mario Kart 7 Commercial Blows Away Video Game
No offense to the excellent 3DS title, but actual kart racing takes a backseat to virtual shenanigans.
It's rare to see a video game commercial that trumps the product it advertises.
Exhibit A: Nintendo's Mario Kart 7 ad.
Instead of showing a generous helping of in-game footage, the folks who designed this spot filmed a live-action Mario Kart race with real actors and sweet special effects. It makes playing the game feel so...so...boring.
Don't get us wrong. Mario Kart 7's super cool; read our review. This ad just makes us want to hop into an actual kart and hit people with turtle shells.
