If you've watched a game show before, you'll know contestants are under a lot of pressure and often give some funny answers.
On the US adaptation of The Chase, one contestant was asked what name the president of Nintendo of America and Mario's arch-nemesis share. While this might be an easy one for Nintendo fans, obviously Mario has dealt with more than one trouble-maker during his lifetime, so it can easily be a guessing game for the average Joe.
Credit to the contestant for at least showing some knowledge of Nintendo - Wario could use with some prime time exposure.
For all we know, someone else could have replied with Eggman or Waluigi. GoNintendo has shared a full clip of the moment with Doug Bowser on Twitter, so if we hear anything from Nintendo of America's real president, we'll update this post.
I say give the man bonus points for knowing who Wario is!
I mean ... that is still pretty good for a casual
I mean, Doug Bowser did work at EA, so it's not too farfetched.
I was in my room tonight, and I heard this question from the other room, and blurted out "Bowser!" Then I ended up hearing the Wario answer.
This would be way funnier if Bradley Walsh was presenting. He had an interesting conversation with a contestant about dressing up as his Dr Who character at a comic con....I'll leave you to search for it on YouTube 😂
So that means Wario kidnap Peach all the time. 😆
You are the weakest link, goodbye
Wrong Mario villain buddy.
I’ve been watching British game shows on YouTube recently. You guys sure do have some neat shoes over there!
lol I watched this in real time and was also yelling at the TV.
The Chase kinda sucks without Mark Labbett, though. That dude from Jeopardy doesn't have the same sort of stage presence.
Technically, Nintendo of America is run by Bowser so he's fairly close.
Saying Wario is Mario's nemesis is still accurate. Not bad.
Somewhere, a guy by the name of Brent Wario is wondering how his plan to take over Nintendo of America got leaked
I had absolutely no idea there was an American version of The Chase. Not enough Bradley Walsh for my liking.
@ralphdibny One of the questions from a recent episode of the UK Chase went as: Which Nintendo series had a game called Ocarina of Time? I was screaming at the guy because he got it wrong!
I always find American adaptations of our shows to suck the fun out of stuff. Like The chase is only memorable at times when Bradly Walsh spends a few minutes laughing at ridiculous answers. Let's not forget how most of the time when they try to adapt other British shows too they just seem soulless and bad too with a couple of exceptions.
It would be more fitting, especially with the rampant anti-consumer practices. (This is just a joke BTW. We don't need to start another argument)
"I'm sorry, but the question was about Nintendo of America. You were thinking of Nintendo in general."
Someone prove that it isn't.
Did we all get it wrong? Is Bowser just Wario cosplaying as a turtle?
Maybe he only ever played Super Mario Land 2...
Uh sure why not? Nintendo HAS been sheeting on us recently
@Ralizah Agreed! I still watch the U.S. reruns on Game Show Network. Mark played into his character so well, with a perfect mix of swagger and humor. And of course, his monstrous size truly made him The Beast.
Close, Wario runs NCL. Bowser runs NOA.
@AlexSora89 Wario runs Nintendo headquarters in Japan lol.
@RudyC3 Ha, good point. (And good game.)
@Anti-Matter He IS the master of disguise after all...
Have a wro... ng day... yaho!
Would explain why it's so damn difficult to use American eshops for Brits with British Bank cards. And then why leaving an American eshop for another country eshop is impossible if you have a single CENT left on your account unless Nintendo support come to your rescue. Completely utterly crazy. Even the Russian eshop doesn't do any of that to Brits.
I’m just wondering if there is some guy named wario out there.
I thought it was Donkey Kong!
This article makes me think of the Wario World commercial:
@Blooper987 thanks! Amaricans often mock us so its nice for a change XD
