A banana peel was the cause of a Mario kart crash in Roppongi last week, according to authorities.
Police say witnesses saw the banana being thrown out of one of the karts further in front.
“Mario came around the corner and there was a banana peel right in the middle of the road,” said one witness.
“He’d just collected an invincibility star as well, but stupidly held onto it instead of using it straight away.”
Police say the kart did a few 360s before crashing into the front of Malin’s Fish & Chips shop.
Mr. Malin told reporters, “Awesome publicity”.
