John Oliver Gave Nintendo the Celebration of Marriage Equality It Deserves

Congratulations, Mario and Link!

In commemoration of the 10 year anniversary of marriage equality in Massachusetts, Last Week Tonight lampooned the lack of same-sex relationships in Nintendo’s Tomodachi Life by making a video showing beloved Nintendo characters enjoying domestic bliss.

Sure, the updates Nintendo has promised to Tomodachi Life won’t feature Bowser and Donkey Kong enjoying a romantic dinner, but hopefully they’ll still be a step in the direction of virtual equality.
