Someone's using the Royals' giant scoreboard to play 'Mario Kart'

It picked up people using the stadium's screen for a colossal game of Mario Kart.

A local news chopper in Kansas was shocked to discover someone playing a casual game of Mario Kart on the massive video board in the Kansas City Royals' stadium.

You can see that in the video above, which comes from Tom Martin of KCTV-5. That reply stated that it was part of an associates fundraiser, and teasing that a video game party could come as an auction sometime this year.

Being played on the "Crown Vision" board at the Kauffman stadium, it turned out the sighting was part of a charity event - not just a technician who had got a bit bored. At 84 feet wide and 105 feet (25 metres by 32 metres) tall, it was the world's largest LED display when it was installed back in 2007. Of course, those dimensions aren't exactly similar to that of your TV, so the game looks a little off in the footage.

Fuck-off giant Mario Kart is the news we need in 2019, and I hope whoever did this absolutely doesn't get fired or anything.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has become one of the most successful games on Nintendo Switch, selling over five million copies since its jump from the Wii U and addicting millions of players. That Switch port received a positive review of its own, for some of its small tweaks to an already great foundation.
