Everybody Loves the Luigi Death Stare



Easily the best thing to come from the Wii U is Luigi’s so-called “death stare” from Mario Kart 8. The blend of annoyance, confusion, anger and terror registered on the lanky plumber’s face has become a phenomenon since the game was released less than a month ago. I’m guessing all the Topless Roboteers love the Luigi death stare, but how do children feel about it? Fine Brothers Productions set out to answer this question with one of their “Kids React” videos. Cue “Ridin’ Dirty” and hit the jump for all of the meme-erizing fun.

I know you guys can’t see me, but I’ve been doing the Luigi death stare all afternoon. Can you blame me?
