This week, Nintendo released The second wave of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass DLC, which includes the Sky High Sundae — A brand new addition to the Mario Kart series.
Nintendo’s announcement is A video was then released that took the internet by surprise. It revealed that the course Coconut Mall, which originally launched on the Wii, will receive a slight update. In the new version, Shy Guy riders waiting near the finish line (the last hurdle a rider faces on reaching the finish line) will do a chaotic doughnut spin in an attempt to slow the player down.
Stuff like this is the best looking, so here’s the linked video showing you the update, and how the shy guy is trying to keep you off the course.

The video, which shows Princess Peach being slammed by a shy guy after being blown up by a red shell, has gone viral and has so far garnered over 33,000 likes and over 700,000 views.
The internet clearly couldn’t resist the meme potential that this latest gem holds.
@TheNCSmaster tweeted this hilarious video How the shy guys basically competed in the same doughnut spin contest that Mordecai and Rigby entered for a cameo on the Carter and Briggs of Regular Show on their favorite police show.
