Yesterday we posted a film short for Portal: No Escape. Today we bring you another short based on the classic video game Super Mario Bros. This time around though it's a spoof. It's a spoof that does to the game exactly what a studio executive would probably try with a film version of the game today. "We need to make it dark and edgy."
Pixelspersecond have taken that and come up with something pretty awesome.
It's as if Darren Aronofsky made this as his first indie instead of Pi. I loved that they didn't resort to copying other spoofs on the game. They found an original route and made a great comedy short.
What say you?
Because I know you're all probably thinking about it. Here's the trailer from the original Super Mario Bros. movie starring Dennis Hopper, Bob Hoskins and Jon Leguizamo.
