Cool or Crazy? Remi Gaillard does Mario Kart for real!

Written by bidden_sue on Wednesday, 10 December 2008No Comment

Remi Gaillard is a legend in France, though outside of that country, you may not have heard of him.

This man has made a name for himself impersonating celebrities in crazy stunts across France. Despite blatantly breaking laws to achieve his stardom, he has met President Chirac and appeared on numerous TV shows. He even has his own Wikipedia page!

However, his true piece de resistance was when he donned a Mario costume and raced through the streets of Paris - in a Kart!

This must have been an amazing sight for all onlookers, as he weaved his way in and out of the traffic, even dropping banana skins at the appropriate moment. Shame no one attempted to do a spin in his honour!

But is he cool or crazy? Clearly his Kart was not road-legal. He may have had a nasty accident. The Gendarmes didn’t appear to be impressed, especially after he made a quick getaway, causing them to take up a swift pursuit.

Do we recommend this behaviour? No!

But do we love Remi for doing it? YES!!!
