    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.

      Summoning Salt I love all of your videos, that’s what makes this channel so special. I’ll look through your channel, see a video on a game I’ve never heard of, and love it. I think that’s how most people feel about your videos. Personally, Mario kart wii is my favorite game, but I think people that don’t like mk would still enjoy the video. I’m not trying to speak for everyone and say that we want more Mario kart, although I do. I’m just saying that no matter what you make I think everyone will love the video.

      Your videos are fucking awesome I love them all, each one has its own depth and new information in it, who cares if it's on the same game you keep doing what you want!

                              Honestly these videos are truly high quality on YouTube. The amount of time that it takes to make 50 minute quality videos is insane. I always find these videos enjoying to watch and would love to see more. Props to Summoning Salt.

                                    Dude, you HAVE to stop using the same songs. These videos seem too similar that way... it's honestly annoying. They were great song choices maybe the first 2 times, but now it just seems lazy.

                                      @Summoning Salt okay honestly I was super sick when I watched the video the 1st time and I was just being a little whiny bitch, the video is actually awesome. Disregard the bitchy comment and keep at it! I really love the music, its honestly just that 1st song that could use better placement because it's always at the beginning

                                      It's pretty common for Youtubers to use the same songs throughout their videos

                                                                            Everything is well narrated, a lot of research can be seen, every trick is explained to people who don't know the game and honestly I want to thank you for this 47 minutes journey into Rainbow Road's history

I remember trying the ultra shortcut of rainbowroad for hours. When i finally got it i was 10th on the german leaderboard as a little kid. It only lasted for like 2 days, but i was the happiest kid in the world.
