Mario Kart + Olympic Speed Skating = ALL THE MEDALS

By February 25, 2014

Ever watch an Olympic event and think “this would be way cooler if the athletes could throw stuff at each other”?

Thanks to Australian filmmaker Michael Shanks, you’re gonna get your wish.

Known as timtimfed on YouTube, Shanks is known for taking real world events and giving them a video game makeover, and this time he took on the recently-completed Sochi 2014 Winter Games.


Watch as Shanks takes the 500M Men’s Speed Skating finals and turns it into Baby Park Stadium from Mario Kart: Double Dash…with HILARIOUS results.

If only all winter games could be this awesome…I’d love to see the snowboarding slalom done SSX-style.

And while we’re at it, we might as well throw this little gem in here in case you missed it when it made the rounds a couple of weeks ago:
