In what is either a brilliant or an incredibly stupid move, a graffiti artist has painted symbols from Nintendo's Mario Kart onto one west-end Toronto road.

According to IndieToBlog, the stars and turtles appeared on Brock Ave. between College and Dundas St. overnight at the end of July, with no evidence left as to who had put them there:
