Happy Birthday Mario!

For those who don't know, Monday marked the 25th anniversary of the Super Mario Brothers franchise.  Can you believe it's still so successful after such a long time?  In honor of this event, and because of my own academic interest in fan culture, I've decided to post links to two of my favorite Mario fan creations.

Sticky Note Super Mario is a stop-motion animation made entirely with sticky notes by students in Japan.  Sort of wish I could take that class, but I wish even more that I had this much spare time!

The second one I've decided to post is the adorable Mario Kart Love Song.  I find it to be incredibly creative and, of course, sweet in a very nerdy way (arguably the best way).

Have a favorite of your own?  Share it in a comment!

  1. Does this youtube video of a Mario mod count? Possibly one of the funniest things ever...
