Video: YouTube Challenge Winner's Video Blasts Into View

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

FreddyW (RocketJump) and HAWP collaboration

Back in December Nintendo announced that the HAWPOfficial channel was the winner of its YouTube challenge, in which a number of popular content creators were given the goal of producing videos inspired by Super Mario 3D World or The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. The winner had the chance to work on a Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze project with Freddy Wong, one of YouTube's major success stories with millions of subscribers.

The video has had a premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah and, as you'd expect, is now available to view online. It riffs on some iconic Donkey Kong props, albeit without directly referencing Tropical Freeze in any way, and seems to have gone down well on the RocketJump channel.

Check it out below and let us know what you think, and you can also see a behind the scenes video and the original winning entry.

It's pretty good. A little choppy, a little amateur, but fun! My favorite little bit is how they didn't attempt to put people into the barrel a realistic way (into the actual opening), but put them in sideways just like the game barrels allow. :)
