If you're old enough to remember the terrible Hollywood live-action Super Mario Bros. movie then there's a good chance you still carry the mental scars. Even lead actor Bob Hoskins isn't a fan!

It would appear that the world is still waiting for the definitive Mario movie, but in the meantime you can check out this creative martial arts interpretation of Nintendo's most famous character.

You can check out Mario's robust Kung Fu skills - as well as his upgraded fireball-throwing ability - via the video below.
