I wanted to make an episode about Mario Kart on the Wii since I've put a lot of time into that game. The game is a ton of fun but the AI is very frustrating. If you're in first place on the last lap you just get bombarded with attacks. The last ten seconds of the final lap can be very hectic.
As far as the episode, I didn't have a plot in mind at first, I just started drawing the Wii Wheel and decided to see what happened. When I was done with it I felt like drawing a fancier one and the plot just came from that. And there's not really a story behind Narc's t-shirt, it's just an idea that popped into my head one day.
