Not So Excite Bike

Back to Bits, a curated animation project featuring the collective works of more than 40 artists from around the world, showcases a series of animated GIFs inspired by retro NES games. This first round, or “level,” in the Back to Bits series is called NES Nostalgia, and is a tribute to retro 80s and 90s NES games.

Not so Excite Bike
After winning almost all of his races in his youth, the hero of Excitebike got lazy, got fat, and grew up. He continued to ride for the money, not for the passion he once had.  He also grew out of his old race suit, and got too big for his old race track.. Ramps that used to throw him in the air are now just speed bumps.
