Mario Kart TV is one of the biggest additions to Mario Kart 8, and will allow players to save, edit and share their finest on-track moments. It's also great for messing about with and creating daft little videos, such as the one we present to you below.

The game's slow-mo feature makes even the most standard of shell takedowns look painfully tragic, and when set to the right music (we've opted for Samuel Barber's epically melancholic Adagio for Strings here, best known for its application in the Oliver Stone anti-war movie Platoon) it can be surprisingly effective.
