Oh, yeah, can't stop Luigi!

In this video posted Monday from action and visual effects group CorridorDigital, a guy dressed as Luigi hops on a skateboard and gets ready to do a speed run through a track inspired by Mario Kart in the hopes of besting brother Mario's time. Watch as he dodges turtle shells, Bullet Bills, Thwomps and other obstacles using boosts and power-ups as he makes his way through the course.

With a dashing amount of skill and maneuvering, Luigi manages to best his brother, barely shaving four-tenths of a second off Mario's time. But, Mario has a few tricks up his sleeves, and you can see what the mustachioed plumber has in store for Luigi by watching the video below.

Because he's a-Mario, he's a-gonna win.
