Every now and then when surfing Newgrounds or You Tube you come across something very different and very, very special. This is one of those somethings. It's a five act story simply titled Mario Brothers from crazy genius Alexander Leon, who used the graphics from the original Super Mario Bros. video game to tell a tragic tale of Shakespearian proportions. Check it.
Mutt and I have always been fascinated by the inspiring yet terrifying power of storytelling to beautify anything. This is one of the greatest proofs of this we have ever seen. It transforms a simplistic and even absurd video game into something dark and powerful that made us completely forget that we were watching a collection of featureless pixels. It makes you wonder what other things stories can make seem beautiful in spite in reality... or already have.
