Seldom does a day ever go by without someone making fun of, or complaining about, Montreal roads! Indeed, the sorry state of our city streets is something to write home about… Now, amused web surfers have started comparing Montreal’s cone-ridden streets to Rainbow Road, the hardest level in classic Nintendo 64 video game “Mario Kart 64”.
If you grew up in the 90’s, you almost certainly remember Mario kart 64 and Rainbow Road, the frustrating, fall-over-the-edge course that all your friends were better than you at!
Now, Twitter user @sssssssssierra has seemingly hit the nail on the head with this brief but accurate Tweet and accompanying video. “Montreal is basically an advanced level of Mario Kart,” she wrote. The Tweet, posted late Wednesday, has since gone viral, with 6.4k likes and 1.6k retweets.
Replies quickly rolled in… “Final boss is on pie IX,” one user wrote. Another added “Fall into one of the sewer holes and have to defeat the primier (sic)”.
Needless to say, we’ll keep you posted whenever another Internet user gets a disproportionate amount of attention for cleverly making fun of our roads! Like this guy did last year!
