Game Theory: How Mario BEATS Sonic at The Olympics!
Special thanks to GEICO for sponsoring this episode!
See how much money you could save on your car insurance NOW! ►

Mario and Sonic are classic competitors. When you put them in the Olympic setting, though, it feels pretty obvious who would come out on top right? Wrong! I know, I know. You think a plumber like Mario would automatically lose but that's not true! The Olympics have had some WEIRD events. Events that may just put Mario on top!

    Mario actually has experience with pistol duelling specifically. It's a mini game in Mario Party 2. Soooo, I'd be inclined to say he would win this one.

    The math on how quickly Sonic would run a marathon is super off. He doesn't run a marathon in a blink of an eye. It takes him about 2 minutes.

    Does anybody remember that one Mario party 3 scene where Mario (or whoever you played as) used to have a gun and shot bowser? Sadly it was replaced with a fake gun.
