The latest add for Blur, the upcoming action racer from Bizarre Creations and Activision, takes a page out of SEGA'S old handbook. In the commercial we are given an obvious reference to Mario Kart, but one of the racers notices the real world cars of Blur speeding by and wishes he too could be all grown up.

The commercial is slightly humorous, though it takes some kinda balls in marketing to take a pot shot at a title it has no hope of ever selling even half as many copies of combined on all platforms. Grown up racers can take a look over at wired, or not, whatever.

Blur is truly better than Mario Kart. No offense.
