A group of Texas gamers took their community by surprise as they played a real-life game of "Mario Kart" on the street.

The seven "players" dressed in character outfits with balloons trailing behind them, just like in the game, and raced one another on skateboards in Austin.

Patrick Lyons, who was one of the players, captured the funny moment on video, and posted it to his YouTube page.

“It was [9 a.m.] on a Monday morning, and all of sudden these guys sitting down on electric skateboards go zooming by dressed like Mario Kart characters with balloons on their backs,” Lyons said. "It was a really strange sight, but college kids are familiar enough with Mario Kart to know exactly what it was, so it got reactions of appreciation and laughter overall.

Many people who looked on were laughing and capturing the game on Snapchat.

"I was just so happy that we'd pulled it off — I'd had the idea for a while because I actually ride my board sitting down normally, but it wasn't until I started meeting other people with electric boards that I knew we could pull off this Mario Kart effect," Lyons said.
