Mercedes-Benz’s New Real-Life Mario Kart Commercials are Wonderfully Weird

on November 12, 2014 7:04 AM

Back around the launch of Mario Kart 8, Mercedes-Benz put together a wonderfully bizarre but funny commercial featuring a fairly hunky real-life version of Mario – luckily with the holidays just around the corner, Mercedes-Benz has answered the call for more ads starring more real-life versions of our favorite Nintendo characters.

Two more commercials based around Mario Kart have been released through the official YouTube channel for Mercedes-Benz Japan, this time featuring not only Mario but IRL versions of Peach and Luigi that are quite hilarious, to say the least: even if you don’t plan on buying a new car anytime soon.

Mario Kart 8 is available now for Wii U – you can check out both of the latest advertisements from Mercedes-Benz below:
