Mario Kart 7 'Fastest Family' Video Gets Serious

Not long ago we brought you a video with UK celebrity Rufus Hound, which was a promo for the Mario Kart 7 "Fastest Family" competition. With regional heats due to start in August, and with a real car and coveted Leaf Cup at stake, the latest video has one simple message: get training.

As you can see in the footage below some rather extreme, and literal, training methods are re-produced to immerse you in the Mario Kart 7 world; bananas, ink and that blue shell feeling are all included. We'd suggest that families in training don't have to go this far, but plenty of practice will definitely help.

Dang! I wish I could take part in that Leaf Cup tournament. Alone, I can probably cause some serious damage, but then again, that's just me. But seriously, I agree. Who hasn't been Blue Shelled.

So disappointed in the rules for this! this would have been perfect for me and my brothers to enter, We three make an amazing gaming family, but it has to be cross generational family members? Why? We are all over 18.
