Must Watch: Mario Rules The Streets In This Awesome ‘Super Mario Bros.’ Creation
  |  @   |  

We’ve all played Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System, correct? If you have not, you should — these video game thingies are going to be huge someday. Anyway, someone decided to take Mario and his world to a whole new level with this great new video.

The idea is simple: take Super Mario Bros. and project it on some concrete and along a street. Why not?! Not only that, but it starts at the very beginning of the game and hauls ass straight through to the end using all of the super-secret tricks and transporting tube portals you have at your disposal. As the game plays out, someone with a camera walks along with the game, capturing the 8-Bit phenomena as it unfolds. Obviously the game was actually thrown into the footage after the fact, but you get the idea. Play along, damnit!

Eat your favorite mushroom (no, not that one…children) or flower or immortality star and flicker-skip to the other side to watch the video!

I do not know for sure whether whomever was playing the game actually pulled this off. If so, it has to be the perfect game of Super Mario Bros. ever played. I know for sure that I would never be able to pull this off, and in fact, am not sure if I’ve even beaten the whole game…stupid boomerang turtle bastards. But seriously, the whole game without even taking a hit until the very end? My brain and its database of thousands of personal games of Mario can’t come close to understanding such a thing.

What I do know, is that every street in this country should have one of these decorating the sidewalk!

  1. That was pretty cool. The editor in me was wondering how he built the panoramic shots of the levels before com positing them on the concrete. On his Vimeo page he has a “making of” video which pretty much explains it all. Very cool
