A Sad Story: Super Mario Depicted From A Darker Side

Super Mario has always been this lively happy game that we have all enjoyed since its first incarnation. There have been countless versions of the game, and also other games featuring Super Mario. He may very well be the world’s most famous game character ever conceived. Each game created hauls in huge amounts of revenue for the company, and I don’t believe we have seen the last of him anytime soon. However, there is a side of Super Mario that none of us has known until recently when a YouTube short movie was discovered. It’s a truly unsettling story about the downfall of a world renowned plumber who once saved the sparkling princess. It’s like the saying goes, everything that goes up must at some point come down again.

I have briefly played Silent Hill, and some people have compared this video and its horrifying style to be just like it. I am inclined to agree, and it really gives me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. If anything, the video itself is well done, but the dirty and gritty approach gives you a lasting bad feeling that stays with you throughout the whole day.

The soundtrack of the video doesn’t really make it any easier either since it combines the minor tunes of demise with a flora of unforgiving hopelessness. I think I pinpointed it with that one sentence. I have watched it one and a half times, and I don’t think I will watch it again. Why? Well, it’s not because it’s bad, it’s because it makes you so damn depressed. #Urgh!
