We Always Knew The Mario Brothers Were Made Men

Spot the cultural references in this film parody
Back in 1993, Hollywood tried to convert one of the biggest video game franchises into a live action motion picture... and it wasn't that good. What was wrong with Super Mario Bros. the film, wasn't the on-screen talent, but the writing and the concept itself. Nothing wrong with throwing in a bit of fantasy, but when in-game references are thrown together for the sake of it, what we get is 104 minutes of total disappointment.
Fast forward seventeen years and The Country Club has come up with a parody that is beyond awesome. Courtesy of The Game Station, the trailer for the fictitious film entitled The Brothers Mario works because it's wonderfully-crafted, short and sweet, and full of in-game and cultural references that will make fans of Mario and Michael Bay films chuckle with delight.
Setting the Mario brothers and co. in a world of crime and violence, get rid of that horse head, sit back, and enjoy.
