Nerd Fantasy Realized: Super Mario as a First Person Shooter

Whoa. Forget fan fiction and turn-based RPGs. This clever animated short by the awesome nerd alerts at Facerocker shows you what it would feel like to be Mario. You know, in the game, not like when you dress up as him on Halloween and make plumber jokes. It’s the latest in a string of Mario-related videos to hit the internets, the most recent of which being the hilarious SXSW live-action Mario trailer and the well-done live-action Mario Kart video. This new internet offering is a little roller-coaster crazy, but totally worth it. Plus, the video comes complete with some grown up jokes — keep an eye on the top of the screen while you try to control your vertigo. Watch after the jump!
