Free running whilst dressed as Mario & Luigi anyone?
Like most video-game settings, Super Mario Bros.’ Mushroom Kingdom bears little resemblance to real life. Where can you find grasslands, desert and snow all in one approximate geographic area? Is there any place where coins and tokens actually float in mid-air?
The answer to these questions is “no,” but one video offers a glimpse at how Mario and Luigi would fare in our world. (Hint: They would probably be parkour experts.)
Watch stunt artists Christian Russell and Ronnie Shalvis dodge fireballs, collect coins and hit bricks, all while flying through the air dressed up as Mario and Luigi. Set to a metal version of the video game’s classic theme song, the video features magnificent acrobatic feats.
