Mario Kart Google Maps Easter Egg Guides You For Mario Day

Mario Day event starts popping up in Google Maps for some

Nintendo's beloved red-capped plumber has started cropping up in Google Maps.

To celebrate Mario, an annual holiday has been established - MAR10 Day.

"Mario Time" will be available in the Google Maps app for both iOS and Android starting today and will stick around for a week.

Tap the yellow question mark at the bottom corner of your Google Maps screen, and you're in for a surprise. Google Maps also offers "street view", an option that lets a user see what it looks like on the ground in any given location. Accept the prompt to enable the feature and your navigation arrow will be replaced with Mario in his trusty go kart. It can be downloaded now for free on the App Store. You don't want to get into an accident because you were too busy staring at Mario riding his little kart. That's right, you can have Mario help guide you to your destination when you're using Google Maps to help guide you on your way. If you're so inclined, you can share screenshots of your route and share it on Twitter and Instagram by tagging @GoogleMaps with the hashtag #MarioMaps.

"But remember, make sure to avoid sharing personal details like your home or work address (seriously, think before you post)", Google warned in a blog post.

Google Maps has been fairly consistent with pop culture references. Mario won't be there to rescue you from any insane stalkers.
