Do not underestimate the impact of Super Mario Bros. — it's inspired beatboxers, flautists, orchestras, artists and plenty more in its 25 year history, but it's rarely hit the limelight for its influence on the world of professional ice skating. Today, that injustice ends.
Top skaters Tatiana Volosozhar and Maksim Trankov took to the rink in the recent 2011 World Championships gala event, in which pro skaters can do something a little different. This video definitely fits in that category, with a female Mario slip-sliding her way through a frankly bizarre routine. Enjoy.
