If you're an indie game developer hoping to grab our attention by creating a crazy, completely over-the-top trailer full of absolute nonsense, you may as well give up now, because nothing's going to top this Team Sonic Racing video.

We'd urge you to just go ahead and watch the thing before reading on so that you can experience it first-hand, but it essentially has an excitable bunch of people running around with shopping trolleys in what can only be described as a psychedelic-fueled version of Dale Winton's Supermarket Sweep from the '90s. Oh Sonic, what on Earth are they doing to you these days?

Still, the use of the Golden O's and the Sonic toaster are a nice touch and there is actually a small amount of gameplay to be seen towards the end (it also features a cameo from Sonic Team board member Takashi Iizuka). If you did somehow manage to watch it until its close, you'll notice that even the little Sega sound effect seems to have given up on performing to its usual standards.

You must have some thoughts on this, surely! Share them with us in the comments below.
