Advertising with some bite

Over the past week we've shared a few Mario Kart 8 30-second commercial that have been doing the rounds, incorporating some fun live-action sequences with game footage.

Nintendo's now uploaded a couple more examples, covering the Piranha Plant — an excellent new item in this entry — and showing a "crazy plunge" that's tackled using the anti-gravity wheels. As before they have a fun, cartoony humour and will no doubt be doing the rounds on various TV stations.

Check them out below and let us know what you think.
