Mad Max Video Game Promoted With Awesome Go-Kart Chase
Now, another fan film is showing us what the blockbuster action movie would have looked like if they literally used karts.
All of the crazy post-apocalyptic gas guzzlers from Fury Road have been replaced with go-karts (the V8 Interceptor kart is particularly adorable), with a Ram 2500 pickup filling in for the tanker truck.
Take a look:
Shot over the course of two days at Jenk Star Ranch in the central Utah desert, the video is actually a promotion for the upcoming Mad Max video game, which can be pre-ordered now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Each character in the short film is based on a character from the game, rather than the movie itself. Still, there are a lot of similarities between the two—like the fact that both come with their own behind-the-scenes video (below).
No word on whether or not a couple of the stunt performers fell in love on set, like two did during the making of Fury Road, although there’s a moment at the 5:10 mark that implies such a romance may have actually blossomed.
Behind the scenes video:
Boy, sure looks like a lot of fun. This gang put together a great little tribute to Mad Max: Fury Road, and they should—wait, did the director just say he hasn’t seen the movie?!?!
Yes, yes he did: at the 12:56 mark, he clearly says, “I’ve actually never watched the movie, so [the video game] was kind of a fresh inspiration.”
Good Lord… Somebody buy this man the Blu-Ray.
