Chicago's L Becomes the 'Luigi' Train for a Day

Illustration for article titled Chicagos L Becomes the Luigi Train for a Day

I'm not sure Chicago commuters were ready for those huge, hypnotizing eyes when Luigi greeted them on the city's L train, rebranded as the "Luigi" yesterday to celebrate the character's 30th year. He spent the day seeing the city, enjoying its deep-dish pizza, and riding its famous elevated rail line.

Nintendo documented the day on its Twitter feed and sent out several pictures of the fun. Most of them are zany, but that first one's almost on a spiritual level.

Why didn't he do this in New York? The trains are so wonderfully clean, and the people can be really nice.
