Video of the Day: An Excellent Super Mario Bros. “Video Games” Parody


Well, it was only a matter of time. In this music video parody of Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games,” Jenny Bede asks the question “what happens when a girl marries the wrong Mario brother?” Well, her life turns into a mindless stream of video games, that’s what happens. Bede, as an extremely pouty Princess Peach stuck in an unhappy marriage to Luigi, sings mournfully to Mario: “didn’t think I was good enough for you/ Always getting caught by random dudes/ Heard you dated Lara Croft/ Oh honey, is that true?” We didn’t think anything would rival the excellent “Hunger Games” parody in our hearts, but turns out we were wrong, because we have a major crush on everything that is happening here. Click through to watch the video, and let us know what you think of this epically nerdy parody in the comments!
