We started this contest with a much darker vision of life in New Donk City for Mario, but thanks to this week’s winner, we can end it on a much brighter one.

The winner for this week is Ihsus who somehow managed the unthinkable, taking a beautiful meme and making it even better, somehow, by the addition of Mario. It’s hard enough moving to a new place, especially when you’re barely more than two fee tall, apparently. That’s why it’s important to make friends quickly, and who better to show Mario the ropes of New Donk City than Mr. John Wick himself.
