Twitter user @ArthuurrrP becomes the first human to pull of Mario Kart Wii's Rainbow Road Ultra-shortcut

Speedrunners continue to set records in Mario Kart Wii's Time Trial mode, and just recently, a user was able to successfully pull off a shortcut that was deemed near impossible to accomplish. It is possible to skip a majority of Rainbow Road by using two mushrooms near the start of the track, but the actual jump required to do so requires pixel-perfect precision. But that didn't stop Twitter user @ArthuurrrP from trying the trick over and over until he did it correctly. Congratulations, ArthuurrrP!

Unofficial Pokemon plush stretches Pikachu to uncomfortable lengths

That's a stretch

Pokemon Co. puts out plenty of official merch throughout the year, especially when it comes to plush dolls. Still, that's not enough to satiate everyone out there, and plenty of other knock-off companies try to slip through the cracks and create their own items. That's exactly what's going on with the plush above.

An absolutely odd Pikachu plush has popped up on AliExpress, and it's quite mammoth. Mixing Pikachu with a centipede design, this Pikachu takes up some serious space. There's a few different designs, with some of them stretching out to 5.5 feet! It's likely these plush dolls will be yanked from AliExpress soon, so check them out while you can!

A bit of Mario musk

A Mario-themed perfume? Sounds like something that would pop up on April Fools' Day, but this is no joke. GAME has announced the product, which is going to be a limited-time item. You can get the full description of this odd product below.

Eau De Plumber, the essence of a versatile gentlemen. This new GAME Exclusive fragrance will bring out the ‘wa-hoo’ in you.

Rushing from one side of town to the other with a strict time limit of 300 seconds? Eau De Plumber has you covered and brings a whole new meaning to words ‘toilet water’.

On bottle of this perfume will cost you £19.99. You can't buy the item just yet, but you can keep track of stock here.

Random Time! - DOOM now playable on the Nintendo Game and Watch

Fans have a habit of trying to make the iconic video game, DOOM, playable on almost every gaming device or electronic hardware.

As can be seen in the video above, the game is fully functional, although the resolution is heavily reduced.
