Nintendo is known for creating family-friendly games starring chubby Italian plumbers who sometimes race go-karts; “Mad Max: Fury Road” is rated (extremely) R.

So naturally, some Internet genius mashed the two driving┬áproperties up into one brilliant new trailer: “Mario Kart: Fury Road.”

The newly created video features lots of footage from the Charlize Theron-Tom Hardy film, with all of your favorite “Mario Kart” power-ups seamlessly making their way in. There are also some excellent audio easter eggs for fans of the long-running Nintendo racing franchise.

“Mad Max: Fury Road” is currently crushing the ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, scoring a 98 percent among critics and a 92 percent with the audience. “Mario Kart 8” on Wii U received a 9.0 out of 10 from IGN.com.

Watch the video above.
