Luigi’s death stare appears in an official Mario Kart 8 Commercial

Today Reddit user portaldark pointed out that the internet meme based on Mario Kart 8 named ‘Luigi’s death stare’ is in a official Mario Kart 8 commercial in Japan. This seems to be a case of Nintendo realizing that the internet is an awesome place for marketing and growing their audience.

I think that if Nintendo were the center of an internet meme a few years ago, they would get rid of it when now, they embrace it and use it as marketing.

The rest of the commercial is just slow motion footage of Mario Kart 8, and it is truly breath taking. You can check out the rest of the commercial below:
