Mario might be a little out of shape, but the plump plumber can run and jump with the best of them.
So can the fantastic free runners who dressed up as Mario and his brother Luigi to create this truly awesome viral video.
The men beneath the mustaches, stunt artists Christian Russell and Ronnie Shalvis, snag coins, hit bricks, and torch Goombas as they flip off walls and run amuck to the strains of a metal version of the Super Mario Bros. theme song. With over a million and a half views in less than a week, the pair may well be collecting a few real-world coins, too.
It's impressive stuff, though you've got to pity those poor hats. How in the world does the real Mario keep his on his head ?
