Mario Brothers: the “Independent Film”

This Mario Brothers “bumper” (a short film shown before the main event) was a hit after its premier at SXSW last week. It imagines the iconic Nintendo game as a live-action feature-length film, with plenty of tongue-in-cheek jokes for those kids who grew up playing Mario Brothers and are now old enough to fully get all the “magic mushroom” references.

P.S. Positive attention for the film reportedly has the director wondering if he will have enough support to actually make the feature length.
