Mario Kart 7 'Fastest Family' Competition Calls in a Celeb

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

No, we don't mean Mario

Not long ago we brought you Nintendo's announcement of the Britain's Fastest Family competition, which is naturally all about Mario Kart 7. Young and old family members team up and enter regional heats around the UK in August, with the grand finale in October. Regional winners receive 'a year’s worth of Nintendo 3DS games', while the ultimate winners walk away with a Honda Jazz Si; though the prize that really matters is the golden Leaf Cup.

To promote the events, Nintendo has recruited comedian and TV celebrity Rufus Hound; below is a promotional video with enough Mario Kart references to win any race. If you want to know more about the competition, check out the official Britain's Fastest Family website.

Rufus Hound is hilarious, but I'm used to seeing him on Celebrity Juice, rather than an ad campaign for a family-friendly game. You've gotta pay the bills somehow I guess.

I wouldn't quite call him a celebrity, even though he did star on Celebrity Juice. He isn't on it anymore though. Good thing really, he's too good for that utter waste of a tv show. And he's now endorsing something which is as much laugh out loud fun as he is himself. Good on him!

@C-Olimar I was well aware of him before he was on that show too, on "Argumental" in particular he was really in his element. Can't believe they axed him from that programme!
