Nintendo Greece Scores Bonus Points With Super Mario Flashmob

Posted by Damien McFerran

Worthy of the warp zone

We've seen a few flashmobs in our time, but this has to rank as one of the best. Nintendo Greece confused, befuddled and ultimately delighted hordes of shoppers by holding a get-together of Super Marios in a shopping centre.

The plumbers gleefully paraded around the various stores, drawing smiles from the assembled crowds.

The stunt was to promote the forthcoming launch of the Wii U console in Europe, along with - you've guessed it - New Super Mario Bros. U.

Angela Merkel was probably watching this in horror as Greece spends its money on Wii Us instead of its massive debt!

I kept waiting for something to happen, a dance routine or something... nothing ever did. Okay. No, I don't think this qualifies as "one of the best" flashmobs ever.

That was hilariously awesome! I wonder if most of the people there knew who Mario was? :p

This is very obviously NOT a flashmob but an orchestrated and professional publicity stunt. They are all about the same age (no kids) wearing exactly the same costume and have obviously been hired for the job.
