Out of the way, grandad

Mario Kart 8 is a game with almost universal appeal, effortlessly able to transcend the boundaries of gender, race and - as the video below proves - age.

Yup, the world-famous React YouTube channel has taken a group of old people, parked them in front of a Wii U playing a copy of Nintendo's famous racing title and shoved controllers into their gnarled hands. The results are predictably amusing, with this selection of elderly individuals arguably supplying more entertaining banter than their younger counterparts.

Do you often force your elderly relatives to play you at Mario Kart 8? Do they show you up by beating you? Let us know by posting a comment below, you young whippersnappers.
