Mario Takes on the Koopas Like Never Before


What if Super Mario Bros. was a Chinese gangster film? That’s the question posed by this entertaining fan video from writer/director Girard Tescon. By mixing comedy with some impressive martial arts action, Tescon has re-contextualized the Super Mario saga into the real world. And he did it without making any lame plumbing jokes. My (red) hat is off to you, good sir.

This concludes your Topless Robot viewing day. Mr. Bricken will return in the morning for all of your nerd news, humor and self-loathing needs.
