This week Nintendo released the second wave of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s Booster Course Pass DLC, including Sky High Sundae – an all-new addition to the Mario Kart franchise.
Nintendo’s announcement was followed by a video that surprised the internet. It revealed that Coconut Mall, a course first introduced on Wii, would get a minor update. In the new version, the Shy Guy drivers waiting at the finish line – the last obstacle drivers face when reaching the finish line – will make chaotic donut spins in their attempts to slow players down.
That’s the best thing to see, so here’s the video linked that shows you the update, and how the Shy Guys are trying to spin you off the track.

The video, which shows Princess Peach being shot by a shy guy after being shot by a red grenade, went viral and has now racked up over 33 thousand likes and over 700,000 views.
The internet clearly couldn’t resist the meme potential of this latest gem.
@TheNCSmaster tweets this hilarious video comparison of how the Shy Guys basically compete in the same donut spinning competition that Mordecai and Rigby enter, to get a cameo on their favorite cop show in Regular Show’s Carter and Briggs episode.

@ElliotDuby didn’t actually call Saulbut he did refer to the Breaking Bad episode where Walter White goes crazy doing donut spins in Walter Jr.’s red Dodge Challenger SRT8.

Most hilarious, however, was the taken out of context Ronald McDonald page@McDonaldsOOC, tweet this funny video of good old Ron spinning around in a weird McDonald’s cellphone.
