HBO’s The Last of Us is a huge hit and has gotten to the heads of the executives, who are now making programs to reimagine another hugely famous video game into a gritty psychological drama. you guessed it right, Mario Kart.
Saturday Night Live presented to us the fictional trailer for “Mario Kart,” a gritty post-apocalyptic drama featuring host Pedro Pascal as the titular Mario. In a world ravaged by Bowser (Kenan Thompson), Mario must escort Princess Peach (Chloe Fineman) to Rainbow Road. It will also star Luigi (Mikey Day), Yoshi (Bowen Yang), and Toad (Marcello Hernández) as allies who also just so happen to be bisexual.
From the high production value, intentional overacting, and attention to detail, this is honestly one of the best-produced sketches in current SNL memory. You have to watch it for sure it is that good, even to just hear Pascal say “It’s a me, Mario,” in a gruff, action-protagonist voice.
