Super Stage Production of Super Mario

Japanese variety show Kinchan no Kasoh Taisho pulls off what's probably the best live-action literal interpretation of Super Mario Brothers I've ever seen.

Readers FarmboyInJapan and Zuri F. sent this along overnight. I've already watched it about five times. This is a huge, complicated production, as you can see by all the people dressed in black helping to animate the scenes, and the giant cast and crew celebration when it's over.

Synopsis: Mario zips through world 1-1 and encounters Bowser, who chases him through New York (with a gratuitous Barack Obama sound bite). But this is worth it just for the power-up sequence alone.
