"Mario Kart" Prank Video: Remi Gaillard Races Paris Streets

(CBS) - Kids, do NOT try this at home! As a prank, French comedian Remi Gaillard decided to create something of a real-life version of the classic Nintendo video game "Mario Kart".

Driving a go-kart at high-speeds through the streets and stores of Paris, He was lucky no one was hurt (apart from the likely-bruised egos of security guards that gave chase).

This was not Gaillard's first time to employ "Mario Kart" in one of his pranks - he did a similar stunt back in 2008.
