It is really sad. But sad in the most wonderful way. Twitter user 6men47 worked all night on this real-life Yu-Gi-Oh! bike.

Dubbed the Yusei Go, the motorcycle‚ÄĒor "Duel Runner"‚ÄĒappears in anime Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's and is driven by protagonist Yusei Fudo.

A real-life version appeared at the 2008 San Diego Comic Con. It was made by master artisans.

6men47's recreation is made with cardboard and held together with string:

Duel Runners can reach speeds of 136 miles per hour. The cardboard version, however, goes much slower.

But don't feel bad! As with many of the stunts 6men47 knocks out, he's in on the joke and doing this for internet fun.
