I just watched one of the coolest pieces of Mario Bros media to ever land on the Internet. The Country Club, a group of YouTube Directors, put out a fictional trailer for their film, ‘The Brothers Mario’. This isn’t your typical Mario Bros. spoof with cartoony visuals and kiddie nature. This is a manly spoof that shines a new light on the plumber bros, casting them as gangsters and ruthless killers. Imagine if a GTA game came out that involved the Mario Bros.
This is exactly what ‘The Brothers Mario’ felt like when I watched it. All of the iconic characters from the games are present in this movie albeit in human form. Goombas are big fat Italians, Bullet Bill has a smiling bullet tattoo on his head, and the brothers sport red and green pimp suits. Check out what your favorite game characters as a child look like when they’re all grown up below. You’ve been wondering why Bowser is a black guy…
