We love a good flashmob here at Nintendo Life Towers - unless it's threatening to make us late for our train ride home, of course. The crazy thrill seekers on YouTube channel Base37 certainly know how to do a flashmob in style, as they recently descended on London's Westfield Shopping Mall armed with motorised go-karts in a range of Mario-themed fancy dress costumes.
Watch the video below to see the mayhem unfold before your very eyes. There are dirty tricks with banana skins, a nightmarish Donkey Kong and a run-in with the police at the end. Clearly London's mall security is somewhat jumpier than that of Isle Delfino!
Haha if I was actually there I would have run behind them to watch.
That's my local.
Probably I was run after they too to watch.
Hell I'd do that. Call it research for game development
I see this doing more damage to Nintendo than helping, especially once the media starts reporting it.
...should they not get chucked out??
@FlashBoomerang It seems nobody there thought that though. It seems like the people didn't pay much attention to them. But the mall looked kinda empty.
Probably thinking what the he'll is a Nintendo and what are these people dressed like. That ain't a guy with a gun shooting terrorists.
On that note at least Bayonetta 2 is £12 in the eshop....
You guys take the train home?
How is public transportation in the UK?
if any of them fell, i'd set them right side up but take a few gold coins in the process.
That's the emptiest mall I've ever seen.
If it's in response to something that's happened, it's horror.
If you're afraid of something that may happen, that's terror.
Wow that's cool, now excuse me while I go buy a GoPro. Why? Just the sudden urge to.
It's not a mall, it's a shopping centre!!!!
You're not an American site, they're not American people and the location is not in America......why use an American term for descriptions?? Seriously though, people watch too much American TV and get brainwashed in terms of the Americanisation of the English language!!! Rant over
Otherwise, great video/execution.......except 'wonky kong'!
That DK costume is truly awful.
also, why were they using roller wheels? scurbs, only noobs use rollers, pros use slick
@ULTRA-64 fair comment! takes long hard look at myself in the mirror!
This is awesome and funny. I would have loved to have seen this IRL.
A real life Coconut Mall course. Just need more indoor greenery
I think you guys need to look up the definition of a flash mob.
I wish this happened at my mall. xD
Reason it is empty is because the mall opens up early but the shops don't open till 09:00/10:00. Customers won't go the mall till shops open.
It's a great video and makes me think that me and my friends should do the same on our swegway boards. Would be bare fun!!
Princess Toadstool panty shot very early on in the vid!
@kobashi100 Make sure you watch until the end of the video then as they get nabbed by the police... game over.
I couldn't help but chuckle. Also surprised they bothered to involve cops after they'd left. All the same: worth it!
@Miss_Dark @1:15 Mario throws a banana and gives Yoshi the slip.
Haha! That's awesome! XD
Haha this made my day! Priceless!
Well, if he is commenting from America, she/he can call it whatever the h*ll she/he wants to call it.
It is a mall.
They should't be arrested.
Ironically, in Italy the anti-riot policemen are known as "blue helmets".
Can anyone give me a Blue Shell pun for the short's ending?
Why was nobody looking at them??? If I was in the mall when that happened I would be absolutely ecstatic
pretty good, still not as good as Remis' Kart
Cool video but would have been funnier if the mall had more ppl and the cameras caught their reactions.
Cool except for the Super Monkey Ball costume. Maybe he got a text to dress in a SMB costume and got it wrong.
wish i was there! i would love to see it in person!
What I want to know is, what the hell are they riding?! I've seen people on similar things and I want one.
@MikeW In London? Brilliant. Outside of London? Well it's a bit hit and miss depending where you go.
That was cool, but worst DK costume EVER. Really needed the Coconut Mall theme too.
@Garushi BUMBUMBUM BUM BUM BABUM BA BUM BA BUM BA BABADABA
