San Francisco Hosts First Ever IRL Mario Kart Race

Well – not really, as no one necessarily seems to be dressed up like the actual Mario Kart characters (although I did see a gorilla suit in there…), and this wasn’t the first time this race actually happened. But it’s really reminiscent of Mario Kart! Anyways, the real story behind this video is that it’s footage from the extremely fun-looking Bring Your Own Big Wheel (BYOBW) 2011 on Easter Sunday, a race where the colorful citizens of San Francisco race down the city’s hills – in this case, Potrero Hill – on big wheels they most likely stole from their kids. Not surprisingly, the event looks like a pretty freakin’ awesome time if you ask me. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
