Jul 8 2010Super Mario Bros, The Way It Was Meant To Be Played: On A, Uh, Graffiti-Covered Wall?

mario-on-wall.jpg

This is a video of several Super Mario levels being played on a city sidewalk. Except they weren't actually played on the sidewalk, the video was motion-tracked and then the Mario levels were superimposed to appear as if they were played on the sidewalk. Which, I bet if you asked Shigeru Miyamoto, is the way the game was meant to be played. Ooooor projected onto a bath-towel while you sit on the shitter. Which, no lie, is exactly how I beat Ocarina of Time.

Hit it for the video.

@14 direct your gaze towards comment 8. I quoted the marios brothers tv show them song. Let me explain the logic here.
1. My comment comes from a tv show
2. The tv show is based on the video of this article.
3. My comment was related to the video through transferable property.

Ok.. I couldn't post a comment because I said bad words but post #3 got through? What kind of taurus caca is this?

Coolest thing I've seen all day!

Neat idea, shit player.

I don't get this one... sure it takes a bit of work to sync the swaying camera and have the game and sidewalk appear to be filmed together (does it? I don't even know... with tech these days it might be super easy). It just seems like two videos slapped together to appear as one (which is what it is). I thought it was going to be stop-motion graffiti or something...

dat was fucking dope yo! g slizzle!

"Several levels"!? The whole game is *beaten*! Looks like *somebody* didn't watch the whole video. Oh... unless that was a surprise. In that case, this post contains spoilers and you shouldn't have read this.

Super Mario galaxy 2 is a great game but i feel like i should start on hardcore games. I need help deciding?

Awesome stuff!
I have always thought that Super Mario is the most popular Super Hero ever. This is simply crazy

I just lost the game
