Video: This Is Why You Should Never Allow Mario To House Sit

Posted by Damien McFerran

Never leave the plumber in charge

Ever wondered what happens if you leave your house and forget to turn off your Wii U? Well ponder no longer, as filmmaker John Huffnagle has created this short movie to show the kind of destruction that Shigeru Miyamoto's most famous creation can unleash when he's left unattended.

The video is seriously impressive and well worth a look — it also serves as a reminder to always turn off your games console before leaving for work.

All that happens when I leave the WiiU turned on is that it turns off automatically.

Haha, that's great. I left my 3DS on overnight the other day; it was rather nice to not have to wake up to a giant rampaging Luiginary Ball wrecking my house.

Nintendo, hire whoever made this video to do some adverts for you, this is infinite times better than anything you've ever done!

Well that explains the bullet holes on my neighbor's window over the weekend... And we thought they were the victims of a drive-by. They must've just left their Wii U on. LoL jk I live on a safe neighborhood, thank God.

It's not bad, but I just had the frustrated feeling of Mario not moving fast enough... HOLD "Y", gat dangitt!

I'm not too worried about leaving a nintendo console on.. I'm more worried about leaving a microsoft game on when I'm gone! O.O

As a side note.. amazing animation.

This clip reminds me of darker Mario universe. A Epic Mario I would love to see. It remind me of this gif:

What if he had left Skyward Sword on? The results could change the world permenantly.

The most impressive thing is a subtle thing, he got the lighting and tracking of the CG objects to mesh so nicely with the real world video. That's why this looks so impressive.

Also, it's pretty cool. Loved the giant Bullet Bill smacking down cars!

People keep mentioning the dangers of leaving your console on, but what if I left it on for Tekken Tag Tournament, think Christie, Julia, and Nina Williams might come out?

How about need for speed most wanted? I could live with a new Jaguar or a Lamborghini Diablo sitting in my driveway...

Pretty awesome. I think it could really draw Nintendo's attention if it hasn't already. They'd probably say "Mario runs faster, make him run faster". Great work guy(s)!
