7 Men Compete in Real-Life Game of “Mario Kart” on Texas Streets

A group of seven gamers took the streets by surprise when they played a real life game of Mario Kart – complete with balloons, costumes and ‘karts’.

Patrick Lyons captured the moment that he and his friends took to the streets of Austin, Texas, to conduct a real life game of Mario Kart.

The players were dressed in character outfits with balloons trailing behind them, and raced one another on by sitting on skateboards.

Patrick, 22, said: “It was nine am on a Monday morning, and all of sudden these guys sitting down on electric skateboards go zooming by dressed like Mario Kart characters with balloons on their backs.
