Mario Kart 8’s Coconut Mall track got a wild update, and the internet is taking notice

This week, Nintendo released the second wave of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass DLC, which included Sky High Sundae — a brand new addition to the Mario Kart franchise.

Nintendo’s announcement was followed by a video that took the internet by surprise. He revealed that Coconut Mall, a course first introduced on the Wii, will be getting a slight update. In the new version, Shy Guy drivers waiting near the finish line – the final obstacle drivers face when reaching the finish line – will do chaotic donut rides in their attempts to slow players down.

Something like that is best viewed, so here’s the linked video that shows you the update and how the Shy Guys try to knock you off course.

The video, showing Princess Peach getting slammed by a Shy Guy after being blasted by a red shell, has gone viral, generating over 33,000 likes and over 700,000 views to date.

The internet obviously couldn’t resist the meme potential this latest gem possessed.

@TheNCSmaster tweeting this hilarious video comparison of how the Shy Guys basically enter the same donut competition that Mordecai and Rigby enter, in order to get an appearance on their favorite crime show in the Carter and Briggs episode of Regular Show.

@ElliotDuby didn’t exactly call Saulbut he referenced the episode Breaking Bad where Walter White goes crazy while doing donut tricks in Walter Jr.’s red Dodge Challenger SRT8.

Most hilarious though was Ronald McDonald’s out-of-context page@McDonaldsOOC, tweeting this funny video of good old Ron spinning around in a weird McDonald’s mobile.

But of course, the meme potential is limitless, and this is just a highlight of the over 2,800 quote tweets attached, so go check out the rest for yourself in the original tweet linked above!
