Hidden in plain sight among the throngs of people crowding Best Buy for a PlayStation 5, Mario was found checking out with one of the coveted consoles. Of course he was wearing a mask. He's a conscientious member of society.
In the hours that have elapsed since the Nintendo Direct last night, Mario has had a time of it. Honestly, if I'd been told that the movie about my life has cast Chris Pratt in the starring role, I would feel a number of emotions. Most of them being negative.
In Illumination's upcoming Mario movie, Pratt will be joined by Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong and Keegan-Michael Key as Toad. Stop this reality, I want to get off.
Check out our compilation of the most magnificent opening scenes in gaming, which of course counts Super Mario Bros. among other stellar titles!
Really, Mario's just like you and me. In the rush to snap up a PlayStation 5 from Best Buys across the United States of America, the plumber took a trip from the Mushroom Kingdom to our world to try his luck.
JayTechTV on Twitter took this photo of a customer checking out with a PlayStation 5 in the enormous Mario costume and it swiftly did the rounds on social media. This person is also wearing a mask, so points for that. He's got a trench coat over the top of the overalls and an extra large pair of spectacles on, too, which led to some speculating that they were trying to create a Clark Kent air about themselves.
It's a ridiculous choice of attire, but it's ridiculous that it's still such an undertaking to buy a PlayStation 5 one year on from the console's launch. So I suppose it dovetails appropriately.
The untitled new Mario movie is expected to release on December 21st, 2022, and it will undoubtedly have a tie-in at Super Nintendo World in Universal Studios Japan. It's a glorious experience and a must for all Mario fans, so get the scoop on the park in our review right here.
