Super Mario Kart with 101 players makes for a wacky race

Watch chaos unfold as too many players race at the same time in this fan-made video.

There's no denying that Super Mario Kart is an addictive and wildly popular video game.

Fans have re-imagined the game in "Star Wars" and "Mad Max: Fury Road." Some fans re-created the game in real life as adults and as kids. One especially smart 10-year-old fan managed to steer a runaway car to safety thanks to his skills at playing Mario Kart.

The YouTube video entitled "Super Mario Kart... with 101 players!" is a fan-made spoof and not a real moment from the game. After all, it would be rather hard to play this game with 100 spare SNES controllers and 100 of our closest video game pals.

In the video, we see players squeeze onto the track of Super Mario Kart making for one heck of traffic nightmare. Reminiscent more of a Monday morning traffic jam in Los Angeles, this video is also rather mesmerizing to watch.

Can you name all the video game characters trying their best to race to the finish line in the Super Mario Kart video below? Who do you think will win? Our money is on Pac-Man.
