Mario is an icon. Mario is "geek chic" culture personified. Mario is... almost sickeningly overused.
Art, music, sculpture... almost anything creative and game-related invariably traces its roots back
to our favorite red-capped plumber. It's easy to become jaded by the sheer volume of Mario-related geekery.
And then something like this comes out:
It's a game (a whole six-minute speedrun game) of the original NES Super Mario Bros. played on a
street curb instead of on a TV. It's not projected on there or anything, it just... is there. Shaky cam,
8-bit graphics, classic soundtrack, pure Mario. I don't know how it was done, but MAN I'm glad it was.
Watch it, and love it.
