Are you unsettled by the surreal design of Super Mario Odyssey, specifically the fact that Mario interacts with regular-looking humans? If so, you’re not alone. The above video, which combines elements of the new Mario title with environments with Grand Theft Auto IV, takes that creepy lifelike quality, runs with it and adds lots of F-bombs.
What begins as an innocuous tale quickly finds Mario soliciting lap dances, stealing cars and fighting gang members. Even in the midst of being gunned down by an onslaught of police, he flails about with Mario joy. A clever parody of a game trailer, or a moving story of perseverance? That’s for you to decide.
