Will Smith Shares Fan Video Turning Bad Boys for Life Footage into a Mario Kart Race
The fresh prince of Rainbow Road.
Yo, this is the story all about how Mario got flipped turned upside down, and…yeah okay. Will Smith over the weekend shared fan-created content on his Instagram as he often does. However, this time around it was video game themed and also promoting the newly released Bad Boys for Life. The brilliance of it might just be enough to make your day a good day, or perhaps entice you to pick back up a Mario Kart game
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have a plethora of behind the scenes footage of their time filming the third installment in the Bad Boys franchise. Most of this footage has been shared online through Will Smith’s Instagram and some on his YouTube channel. It seems that one of the scenes where they film a chase sequence inspired Instagram user, alfredzass to create a Mario Kart inspired sequence.
The footage starts off with Martin Lawrence and Will Smith on a bike with a sidecar, with the classic Mario Kart countdown taking place. Then, coupled with the music from the games, the map, and the 1st place graphic, we get to see what Mario Kart looks like in a realistic Bad Boys setting.

Sure enough, you can see some enemy bikers with bananas and green shells. Will Smith fires off a Bob Om at one point, and Martin Lawrence does his iconic screaming as they run over a banana and spin out of control. In the description, Smith indicates that his favorite characters are Toad, Daisy, and Marty Mar. Hopefully, this culture post has given you a smile to start your week.
