Crazy French comedian and all around rabble rouser Remi Gaillard has taken to the streets for another round of video game-themed pranking.

Gaillard — who's known for pulling stunts such as this one, this one and this one — recently donned the Mario blues and reds, glued a giant Nintendo 'stach to his lip and zipped through the French streets in a "Mario Kart"-style go-kart. Hilarity ... and pursuit by security officers ... ensued.
