    My apologies to people who are sick of seeing Mario Kart videos from my channel, but I really enjoy making them. They're pretty easy to work with since I already have a decent amount of knowledge on the series. I probably won't do another one for a while, but I just wanted to let you all know why you've seen so many in the last year or so.

    This video was quite the project! I started it nearly 4 months ago, and it's really crazy how many people were able to help. I really appreciate all of you who did- you can see who they are in the intro of the video. The Mario Kart community is extremely helpful, and there's no way I'd have been able to make this without them. It was funny looking back at the start of this video in this last week I was finishing it up. The stuff from Super Mario Kart was finished all the way back in March/April, while Mario Kart 8 was just finished earlier today.

    Thanks so much for watching and supporting me! I can't wait to make more videos, and can't believe how far this channel has come.

      Summoning Salt I love all of your videos, that’s what makes this channel so special. I’ll look through your channel, see a video on a game I’ve never heard of, and love it. I think that’s how most people feel about your videos. Personally, Mario kart wii is my favorite game, but I think people that don’t like mk would still enjoy the video. I’m not trying to speak for everyone and say that we want more Mario kart, although I do. I’m just saying that no matter what you make I think everyone will love the video.

            I've watched a bunch of videos now.
            So I have to say it: good job.
            You really care about your videos. It really not hard to tell that you enjoy narrating these stories to us. Clean videos, good edits and, most importantly, your soundtrack (I mean the one that you use at the start and at the end) is just too good. It's catchy, relaxing, and it really sets up the mood and the pace of the video. And you've got a nice voice tho (I mean you are capable of making us forget that we are watching a mere video and throwing us in a brand new world that we do not know. You talk about these runners and their world records like if they were tale).
            So keep it up. I'd like you to see you on different game but .... please, just do what you feel like doing because if you do so the videos are just top notch.
            Keep it up.

              This is such a good documentary. I entered with no interest in Mario Kart speedruns and left with a newfound respect for them.

                  Is it weird that this video fills me with nostalgia even though I’m 14 and have been around since mario kart wii??

                        I'd love to see one about Mega Man X one day. Alot of insane pixel perfect strats have been come up with over the last few years and fairly recently one runner achieved both world records in Any % and 100%.

                              The freakiest part about all this is that the narration was so good, the images were so good, and the soundtrack was so good that when I got to the end, and he started talking about effort and perseverance, my eyes watered up. I never thought I'd get emotional over Rainbow Road...

                                      Was really hoping to see MK8 version of SMK Rainbow Road, I'm within a second of the online record for the track and i wanted to see the sick strats.

I feel like you and him would make a great team for this video, one who is experienced in the speedrunning and one who is good at editing and making the progression in to a collage. He just for a record in under an hour... I think this would be a fun game for you to cover with him.
