Video: Here's a Charming Mario Kart 8 Song to Start Your Week

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Goodbye Blue Shell by Ryan Craddock

A good number among the Nintendo Life community have, we suspect, emerged blinking into the daylight after Mario Kart 8's arrival last week — a full weekend of racing can be a tiring endeavour. As such we may need a pick-me-up to get through the start of another week.

This song from budding YouTube artist Ryan Craddock, a keen Nintendo fan that's previously entered contests such as Nintendo UK's #My3DS campaign, may help those Monday morning blues. His latest video is all about the blue shell, and a tribute to the Super Horn that can finally take it down — there are prayers offered to Nintendo 'Gods' and a scene involving a baseball bat and shell; you can guess what happens.

Most importantly, this is actually a nice song, so check it out and let us know what you think.

Haha the beat is always the best part of a song. And he nailed it perfectly. What a lovely song and the video was amazing too. Favorite part was the Scooby-Doo inspired chase seen. And of course the beating up of the Blue Shells.

For a moment, I thought this was going to be a parody of "Goodbye Blue Sky" by Pink Floyd.
