Satoru Shibata, Nintendo of Europe President, recently celebrated his birthday with an online tournament in Mario Kart 8, which seems like a perfect way to enjoy the occasion; Nintendo UK has taken the liberty of tweeting the video of some Mario Kart TV highlights.

It was a high profile MK8 party, too, with some big players from Nintendo joining the NoE boss. The line-up included Eiji Aonuma, Takashi Tezuka, Hideki Konno and even Marty (who represents Nintendo of Europe on Miiverse).

You can see Shibata-san's moment of glory in the video below.

Have you gathered friends in Mario Kart 8 to celebrate a birthday? Will you be inviting Eiji Aonuma to your next event? Let us know.
