The Brothers Mario battle Bowser in a gangland tale

Created by the geniuses at CountryClubPictures, The Brothers Mario is a machinima that recasts the Super Mario Brothers’ battle against Bowser as a gangland tale between the mafia and Bowser’s “Koopa Troopa Gang.” It was originally posted on YouTube almost three weeks ago, so you may have seen it already, but if not, it’s a great way to spend a few minutes on a lazy New Year’s Day.

The constant barrage of characters and references is amazing including “Bullet Bill” as an assassin and the “Hammer Brothers” as crazed enforcers (causing Luigi to quip “Never bring a hammer to a gun fight!”). There’s also “real world” versions of Toad and Yoshi along the Koopa Troopas as a literal paratrooper force…

I could go on, but listing all the references to Mario games and the crime film canon would just ruin the surprise. Watch it and be entertained.
