A couple of days ago I posted a video of Mario breaking out of the TV and into the real world, bringing the dangerous and destructive elements from the video game along with him. The video below is on the other side of the spectrum of twists on Super Mario Bros., restricting the 8-bit versions of Mario and Luigi to the physics of the real world. Suddenly, breaking bricks with your head for gold coins doesn’t go so smoothly.
The video was made by the Pete Holmes Show. If you haven’t watched the TBS show, I’m sure you have at least come across their Batman, Ex-Men or Street Fighter: Red Tape sketches. I hope Holmes and his writers continue their streak of lovingly taking geek properties and giving them a swift kick in the pants.
