Sometimes All You Need On a Tuesday is a Mario/Taken Parody

Fortunately for us all, WTFLOL was kind enough to provide. This sort of thing is the bread and butter of the Internet, and it’s pretty well made and funny. I’m fairly certain all references in this trailer are old enough to attend middle school now, but it’s still some quality Internetting. Kudos!

And thank you to Henchgirl Alyssa for finding and sharing this gem.



Blue Shell Blues

Looks like at least Nintendo WiiU (Wii2?) understands the power of the wacky Internet thing. They commissioned a song from the Brett Domino Trio to commemorate the new Mario Kart.

What is the Deal with Fire Flowers?

That somebody awesome was Esquirebob Animations!

6. Super Mario Brothers

It’s not always style or beauty in the music itself that captivates us.  This song, playful and upbeat, represents an entire generation of gamers from the very start of the home console.


5. Tetris

This isn’t the first time the Tetris theme has made it onto this blog, and for good reason.  This theme echos the methodical approach to Tetris’s gameplay, and at times the frantic rush that comes with the more difficult stages.
