What does Rihanna have to do with Mario Kart 8?

Nothing, but we're emotionally stunted and lack the capacity to express how excited we are for Mario Kart 8 any other way. Let's not be so quick to pass the opportunity to appreciate Queen RiRi in all of her GIF-ed glory. Lacking a working ability to convey just exactly how incredible Mario Kart 8 actually is, we're going to use Rihanna as a substitute for adequate expression.

Can't really think of anyone that's going to get that butthurt over the decision.
