    The stare......
    The glare......
    It pierces my soul man XD

    Nobody mess with Luigi, especially when The Year of Luigi is still going strong!

    But seriously, Luigi got a lot of love in Mario Kart 8! I believe this death glare of his is now a sort of memetic mutation on the internet! Go Luigi!

    Haha I really love that stare of him, he really shows that noone should mess with Luigi while he is driving his cart. I believe that this Luigi stare is a good add for the Mario Kart 8 game, because this stare has started to get viral on the internet, and when something get viral on the internet it can't be stopped by anyone.

    Hahaha, possibly my favorite recent meme! There's another version with Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek" that's pretty funny too.

    I saw the images before I was able to get the game and let me tell you, I don't mess with Luigi anymore. There's a hilarious video on youtube with a cosplayer doing the Luigi Death Glare as he drives by throwing stuff at other people.

    This was pretty much destined to become immortalized by the internet. That stare did a lot for Luigi's popularity and overall image. I guess Nintendo didn't want to end the Year of Luigi just yet.

    I love it! I think it was smart on developer's part to make Luigi the one with the death glare. He has always been a prominent character and making him like this just increased the love for him.

    Lol so funny! I always use him on SSB because he is one of those unorthodox characters.

    Oh, I love that meme. Luigi has been viewed as an easily scared pushover for so long, compared to his brother, he must have finally said "Enough!" Luigi's mad, and everyone just fueled his fire. Still, it's just so unusual seeing Luigi so angry, it's almost funny.

    Haha, I laughed hard. I'll always remember that meme. I think it had a great impact on Luigi's image. Still it's a bit awkward to see him so upset. Really funny.

    Anytime I see the Luigi Death Glare meme, I think of the song "We're Not Gonna Take It" by Twisted Sister. Nintendo decided to make it so that Luigi manned up and kicked some butt.

    Haha I saw that on reddit it was extremely funny. But I had not seen footage of Mario Kart 8 so I was mostly amazed by the graphics.

    I agree. He's normally really nice and easily scared. One day, though, it seems that he just had enough of people thinking he was weak or a pushover.

    Oh, yeah. It became a really famous meme. I guess because so many people like Mario. Still, wow.

    Yeah, good for Luigi. He's finally being taken seriously (I guess). Yeah, even I have been enjoying this meme and it almost makes me want the game. Just to see it in action.

    It's not just the fact it's part of the mario stuff though. It blew up faster than meme's from more popular games..

    Well, I guess that's true. Even people who hate Mario know of the Luigi meme. It's just too funny to not appreciate.

    I know. I didn't even really grow up with Mario, but I find that meme hilarious. Nintendo needs to do more stuff like that. That was golden.
