The People's Mario Strikes A Blow

The People's Mario Nintendo's famous Super Mario Bros. takes place in the breezy Mushroom Kingdom where even the clouds offer a friendly smile, but what if the setting were switched to the Communist-entrenched Soviet Union?  How would a Mario of the people handle an onslaught of Goombas?  Check out "The People's Mario" in which Mario strikes with a swift hammer to turn his foes into bloody pulps set against the rousing march "Farewell of Slavianka" as performed by the Red Army Choir.

That was much more awesome than it had any right to be. Check out the nearly fullscreen Flash version for greater clarity if you want to watch it again. Goodness knows I do. Oh my, is this how propaganda works?
