Have you seen this recent ad for Mario Kart 7 on the picture box? It sure looks like it was done using CG (computer graphics), doesn't it? Well, not as much as you might think. The ad team behind this Nintendo game advertisement likes to do things old school, apparently, and released a behind-the-scenes video showing that the ad was made using real, customized go-karts.

Better yet, one of those real Mario Karts actually did one helluva jump off of a ramp in the making of this 35-second video. The 13-year-old inside you is probably already crying to mom that he just has to have this game when it hits the 3DS Dec. 4. As for us, we're more interested in getting our hands on one of those legit karts. Who knows, maybe they'll pay Times Square a visit. Check out both videos below:
