A series of thirty-second Japanese TV spots have been put together advertising Mario's 35th anniversary and the recently-announced collection of his 3D adventures, Super Mario 3D All-Stars. The clips are now up on the company's YouTube channel and we've assembled them below for your enjoyment.
Each title in the collection gets its own spot showing players enjoying the game in and around their homes, as well as a more general, celebratory (and musical) commercial for the plumber's 35th anniversary. We particularly enjoy the Super Mario Sunshine one, which shows a man failing at the game multiple times. Who can't relate to that? Some of those shines are mighty tricky.
Check out the Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary TV spot here:
And then there's the Super Mario 64, Sunshine and Galaxy TV spots at the start of this vid (followed by various international versions):
Is all this Super Mario love getting you right there, in the feels? Let us know your favourite spot with a comment below.
That first one's song sounds pretty good and looked the most imaginative imo.
I'm glad they are marketing that shadow goo manta ray boss fight in Sunshine as terribly difficult
It's not if you know about a certain spraying technique, but otherwise yes it's really difficult without that.
@Bobb I thought the last shot would show him beating it but they kept it accurate
I wonder if the required spinning action of the control stick to defeat Bowser in SM64 will also defeat the dreaded joycon drift.
I like how the 64 and Sunshine ads are basically, "Tired of all your miserable adulting? Turn back time with Mario."
Can't wait to play these games on the go!
The second one with the dad watching his kids play Super Mario 64 and then cutting to him playing at night when everyone was asleep got me. 😭
Aww the N64 one was awesome!
@RandomNerds Haha yes, same!!
@Quarth but can Galaxy be played in handheld mode?
I love how the parent watches his kids die to the Cool Cool Mountain slide, and just stares straightforward like "Yeah, I remember dying there a lot..."
I like that the sunshine commercial ends in failure on that level, very honest depiction of getting good
You see, these, I like.
@Andymad Can't it? Never played it before and I know that Wii uses motion controls, but shouldn't they have fixed it so you can play it both ways? Or is the game totally dependent on motion controls?
@Andymad Yes, but the pointer controls turn to touch controls instead.
Aww the Mario 64 one gives me feels.
I like that the Mario Sunshine just has the guy dying over and over.
The Mario 64 ad with the father drinking coffee, hearing that sound and noticing his kids playing a game from his childhood. Then he's up all night playing it.
When I see the header image, all I can think of is Chocolate Rain.
Although, I don’t know who the artist in the first video is, reminds me of someone. Maybe like Reatmo, who I saw do an awesome live looping beatbox of the original super mario song.
WAIT! I still have to do the waggle jump in galaxy?
Looks like the singer is Gen Hoshino
@Itsacardgame Oh, I thought it was Kenshi Yonezu. Their voices are pretty similar.
I think if i have a chance to buy the Switch version, i will prioritize the Sunshine as i have never played before. Not interested with Mario 64 originally taken from N64, but the NDS version somehow looks a bit better and different for me, the Galaxy still felt like a punishment if i replay again from beginning on Switch version after i have finished the Wii version with not really satisfied feeling.
Tough decision and my plan B was getting Sunshine originally from Gamecube version if the plan A is not working. At least i will get booklet inside as favorite things for game collector.

@BanjoPickles The Stretchers
Absolutely love these videos! I think they could have run them here with subs and got just as much attention
