When Nintendo of America tweets a link to a TV news segment, we're normally inclined to shrug it off. We've seen enough news anchors stumble their way through a conversation about Nintendo games for one lifetime.

Yet this one's a bit different. A Nintendo of America rep appeared on Fox 5 Morning News with some props, Mario and Luigi mascots and a copy of Super Mario Maker, and two news hosts transformed into excitable kids. Even accounting for the jolly entertainment approach typically taken in morning news, one presenter in particular appears to be having a genuine fanboy meltdown, even if his Mario experience dates back to the NES days.

We're excited about Super Mario Maker too, but are we as excited as this guy? It's a close one.
