Real-Life Sonic The Hedgehog Outruns Tram

Sonic the Hedgehog is driven to one thing in life — to go fast. But can the power of Sonic make a normal man run faster than light rail?


Filmmaker Emlyn Lewis pitted one Sonic cosplayer against the Dublin public transit system for 2 kilometers. While it's not like he was going up against a mag-lev train, you do have to admire the spirit of someone dressing up like a blue cartoon hedgehog to confuse the city of Dublin. I wish someone would do that on my commute.

Keep going fast, buddy.
