  1. There Was An Awesome Peach & Mario Dance To The Classic Theme On Dancing With The Stars Last Night

    Do the Mario!

    Last night was the first part of the Dancing with the Stars season finale, and Sadie Robertson (Duck Dynasty) and Mark Ballas made the most of their free style with this adorable homage to Mario. Peach, Mario, Luigi, and Toad all show up to groove to the game's classic themes. It's actually kind of the best.

  2. Mario Can’t Withstand Luigi’s Sick Dance Moves in Weird Live Action Mario Kart Commercials

    Do the Luigi! Swing your arms from side to side, now pop and lock.

    It's weird to see a real car company like Mercedes-Benz get put into Mario Kart with DLC, but it's even weirder to see Mario characters get put into real Mercedes—mostly because of Luigi's apparent double life as a member of NSYNC. Meanwhile, it looks like Mario's been studying the death stare.

  3. Video Gaming Has a Problem With Jumping Realism, and It’s Mario’s Fault

    Don't try this at home.

    Humans as a species are not actually very good at jumping, but you wouldn't know that if you looked at video games. And not just platformers, either; even the most realism-driven games sometimes allow players to bounce off the walls like it ain't no thing.  So why is this such a pervasive mechanic? According to PBS Game/Show, it all points back to Super Mario Bros.—and, of course, a heavy dose of wish fulfillment.

  5. Mario’s Voice Actor Has His Own Vine Account, Guess What He Does With It

    It's-a me, SELFIEEEEEEE

    For twenty four years, American actor Charles Martinet has delighted Nintendo fans with his jovial portrayals of Mario, Luigi, Toadsworth, Wario, Waluigi, and other characters in the Mario franchise. Now on his off hours, he's further adding to his legacy by carrying action figures of the plumber brothers around with him and making adorable Vine videos of them. Isn't the Internet a magical place sometimes?

  6. Someone Call PETA: Mario Is Torturing Animals Again in Realistic Mario

    Game over, man. Game over.

    Here it is, subjects of the Mushroom Kingdom: your last Realistic Mario—probably. The Pete Holmes Show will sadly be no more after it finishes its current run on June 19th, but they managed to give Realistic Mario one more extra life before it disappears forever into the bottomless pit of dead TV shows.

  7. Realistic Mario Warns You That Dinosaurs Will Eat Your Friends

    Yoshi is not your dinosaur friend, sorry Mario.

    This episode of Realistic Mario pretty much sums up what would happen if you encountered a dinosaur. Yoshi viciously consumes everything because that's what carnivores do. As expected, it's highly doubtful that a dinosaur could be tame enough to let us ride on its back anyway. These episodes are turning out to be a very painful journey for Mario.

  8. Super Mario Bros. Theme Song Played on Wine Glasses and a Frying Pan Will Make You Feel Like You’re on a Cruise Ship

    Cruise like you're in Bowser's castle.

    Whatever it is you're doing, just stop for a few minutes and check out Dan Newbie playing the Super Mario Bros. theme song with a couple of pencils on 48 wine glasses filled with tap water. The frying pan percussion is also an especially nice touch.

  9. Realistic Mario Reminds You Not to Try Breaking Bricks With Your Head at Home

    Eating strange plants to shoot fire out of your hands probably isn't advisable, either.

    Pete Holmes really likes to take our favorite things and point out the silly conceits we make for our suspension of disbelief, so now he wants to show us what Mario Bros. would be like in the real world. I mean, he's big Mario, so he clearly took some shrooms, which might explain why he thinks he can break bricks with his head to get gold coins.

  10. Butcher Billy is Back With The Donkey Knight Returns Project

    "I want you to remember, in all the years to come - the one Italian plumber who beat you."

    Our pal Butcher Billy loves to mash up pop culture, and that's great, because he's very talented at it. His latest project combines takes the barrel-throwing Donkey Kong and turns him into the barrel-chested Mutant Leader of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. Yeah, we're 100% on board with this.
