MANILA, Philippines — The recently-concluded Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia turned superhuman feats on ice into a 16-day spectacle for the world to gawk at.
It also piqued the imagination of Aussie filmmaker Michael Shanks, who had a bit of fun turning Olympic clips into video game feats.
Shanks juxtaposed recognizable elements from the classic Nintendo game Mario Kart into the clip featuring the 500-meter division of the speed skating competition.
Gaming geeks will surely recognize the banana peels, cobalt blue bombs, and random lightning hits.
Also, Shanks would make a pretty good commentator, don’t you think?
