Nintendo’s latest mixed-reality video game,
As the videos show,
Using their Nintendo Switches as controllers, players race through custom courses they’ve set up in their homes. And, as one would expect, the courses are approximately ten million times better when pets inject themselves into the action. In the video at top, for example, the YouTube channel, Blue Television Games, shows a race in which a cat forms a perma-block with its paw.
Esports Tournament Director and Twitter user “Bear” posted another great Kart cat video, above. The video shows Bear racing around his home track before his cat Ginger slips underneath his bed to block his RC car. Unlike the cat in the first video, there’s no paw blockage, but the interaction is just as funny. Mainly because the cat apparently perceives the RC car as a rabid, whining rodent.
Dogs, of course, jump in on the live
Along with Bear’s video featuring dogs, YouTube user Stephen Farrelly also posted one (immediately above) involving a rambunctious pug. Throughout the video, the pug is up in RC Mario’s grill, spinning and slamming like a nasally blue shell. Speaking of which, we can only imagine what kinds of interference pet birds could drop onto one of these races. Hopefully it wouldn’t be a real-life version of a Blooper though: that could get messy.
