Luigi narrowly avoids death in this eye-watering skate video

Until I get a Mario skateboarding game that looks like the Mario Strikers box art and plays like a Nintendo-smooth version of Jet Set Radio, this mesmerizing Mario Skate video will have to do. I know, I know, YouTube videos fusing real-life footage with video-game inspired computer graphics are hardly new, but watching Bullet Bills and thwomps whiz by skate punk Luigi at 60 frames per second really is its own experience.

That shortcut scene still gives me a thrill every time I watch it. Mario Street Skater 3D needs to be a thing, and it needs to be a thing yesterday.
