    My apologies to people who are sick of seeing Mario Kart videos from my channel, but I really enjoy making them. They're pretty easy to work with since I already have a decent amount of knowledge on the series. I probably won't do another one for a while, but I just wanted to let you all know why you've seen so many in the last year or so.

    This video was quite the project! I started it nearly 4 months ago, and it's really crazy how many people were able to help. I really appreciate all of you who did- you can see who they are in the intro of the video. The Mario Kart community is extremely helpful, and there's no way I'd have been able to make this without them. It was funny looking back at the start of this video in this last week I was finishing it up. The stuff from Super Mario Kart was finished all the way back in March/April, while Mario Kart 8 was just finished earlier today.

    Thanks so much for watching and supporting me! I can't wait to make more videos, and can't believe how far this channel has come.

      Mario Kart is one of the first games I ever played, and it is my favourite game franchise to this day. Don't apologise, man :)

                                              The MK8 Rainbow Road portion of the video was good, but I would have loved to hear the 200cc section of it a lot more then 150cc
