Video of the Day: Super Mario Goes Grand Theft Auto


Shigeru Miyamoto (who is profiled in this week’s New Yorker) created Mario, Luigi, and the rest of the Super Mario Bros. gang way back in 1985. While the classic characters, secure in their fantastic, colorful land of spiked turtles and distressed princesses, hold up pretty well, there’s no harm in looking at what it would be like if Mario and Luigi lived in a world that was more along the lines of Grand Theft Auto. Thanks to our pals at Urlesque, you can watch them thrive on the mean streets in the mock trailer for The Brothers Mario after the jump.
