How not to fly an X-Wing

Now we know why his name was 'Porkins'. Poor sap.
Youtube snip:
This is an instructional video on what not to while driving a starfighter capable of Mach 65. Ergo - don't eat cheeseburgers at the wheel, people.

Maybe those folks who built that real X-Wing in Plaster or wherever it was, could learn a lesson from the master of nose-dives!

My tribute to the eternal master of the skies; a man for whom 'light snack' had no meaning... Jek Porkins.

Mario Kart - The Movie

If the videogame MARIO KART was a movie, then this would make for an excellent trailer!
