Why Does Mario Look so Pervy in This Video for Nintendo Girls Club?


I kinda thought we’d gotten way past girl gamer stereotypes, but whatever – Nintendo’s new female-skewing channel seems to be aimed at younger kids, and that’s fine. Machinima and places like that have plenty of game-based channels that favor raunchier, male-skewed humor.

And then they throw in the image above, almost randomly. Giving the benefit of the doubt, I suppose they meant to imply an innocent game of hide and seek. But considering Mario is an adult male human, and he appears to be hiding in a girl’s bedroom, I really, really would have urged them to go with a cute critter like Kirby instead.

See for yourself…
