Prior to the release of Super Mario Run on mobile, it might have been a shock to see Mario in an iPhone commercial. Nowadays, it's not as surprising. To promote it's new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, Apple has released a commercial about upsizing - with Mario making an appearance in it just after the halfway mark.

Titled "Growth Spurt" the short one-minute clip shows food, objects, and even pets growing in size - to help drive home the point Apple's new device is a lot bigger than past models. Mario's inclusion in the commercial makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately, though, the mushroom behind the act is not credited.

Super Mario Run was originally released on the Apple Store for iOS devices in December 2016. This followed with its release on Google Play in March 2017. In July this year, Sensor Tower revealed it had netted about $60 million in profits from worldwide player spending since its launch.

Take a look at the clip above and tell us in the comments if you're still playing Super Mario Run.
