    My apologies to people who are sick of seeing Mario Kart videos from my channel, but I really enjoy making them. They're pretty easy to work with since I already have a decent amount of knowledge on the series. I probably won't do another one for a while, but I just wanted to let you all know why you've seen so many in the last year or so.

    This video was quite the project! I started it nearly 4 months ago, and it's really crazy how many people were able to help. I really appreciate all of you who did- you can see who they are in the intro of the video. The Mario Kart community is extremely helpful, and there's no way I'd have been able to make this without them. It was funny looking back at the start of this video in this last week I was finishing it up. The stuff from Super Mario Kart was finished all the way back in March/April, while Mario Kart 8 was just finished earlier today.

    Thanks so much for watching and supporting me! I can't wait to make more videos, and can't believe how far this channel has come.

      Summoning Salt I love all of your videos, that’s what makes this channel so special. I’ll look through your channel, see a video on a game I’ve never heard of, and love it. I think that’s how most people feel about your videos. Personally, Mario kart wii is my favorite game, but I think people that don’t like mk would still enjoy the video. I’m not trying to speak for everyone and say that we want more Mario kart, although I do. I’m just saying that no matter what you make I think everyone will love the video.

      Your videos are fucking awesome I love them all, each one has its own depth and new information in it, who cares if it's on the same game you keep doing what you want!

                God I absolutely love this channel! I just wish there were more videos to binge, as I'm pretty sure I've watched everything from WR progression for Super Mario Bros onward at least 5 times and I can't wait for the next video! Maybe do a WR progression for Ocarina of Time next!

                    Why? Go out virgins and meet a girl , get her drunk and fuck her brains out. It's much than sitting in your parents house playing video games. Live life my Virgin friends, y'all remind me of Chris chan.

                          The part where in mario kart 8 the above 2 minutes courses get slowly taken down from the list with the atmosphere generating music! That part made me forget everything else in life and i almost started crying, because of the dedicated community, hours of life poured in the game and the accomplishment of doing the thing many people think is impossible! you make great videos !

                          Thanks SUMMONING SALT

                              I would LOVE to see a SpongeBob Battle for Bikini Bottom WR Progression video... I think its pretty well recieved by the community, and SHiFT is REALLY fun to watch. I know the world records have dropped a lot in the past few years, plus its spongebob... People love spongebob... Give it a thought, love your videos, keep up the great work!! 💛💛

                                  Music at 20:50 is also used in a game called evolution of species. Idk if it's from there, but that's where I heard it.

The amount of time that it takes to make 50 minute quality videos is insane. I always find these videos enjoying to watch and would love to see more. Props to Summoning Salt.

Disregard the bitchy comment and keep at it! I really love the music, its honestly just that 1st song that could use better placement because it's always at the beginning
