PETA - Relax Mario Fans, It Was All a Joke

Fur real

Oh, PETA. Your Tanooki Flash game stirred up a real hornet's nest, and Nintendo's reaction threw frogs and penguins into the mix. Now PETA has clarified its original intentions — it was all a joke.

The organisation just sent over a statement that says its Tanooki-related Flash game was all a tongue-in-cheek joke, and that it really wishes the real-life inspiration for Super Mario 3D Land's most famous suit could fly and tail-whip like its in-game counterpart.

That's that cleared up, then.

PETA Statement re New PETA Game Lampoons Skin-Stealing Mario

Mario fans: Relax! PETA's game was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, a fun way to call attention to a serious issue, that raccoon dogs are skinned alive for their fur. We wish real-life tanukis could fly or swat enemies away with their tails and escape from those who profit from their skins. You can help them by never buying real fur.
