Is Super Mario Brothers A Great Work Of Surrealist Art?

That’s what the Idea Channel posits…

We all know who the Mario Brothers are but have you ever stepped back and tried looking at those games from a fresh perspective? Like you’ve never seen or heard of them before? They’re bananas! There are armored
turtles who stand on their hind legs and steal princesses! There are bullets with FACES! We make a case for Mario’s inclusion into a canon of art wider than “Video Game”: we think Mario is a piece of surrealist artwork.

I have to say I think they lay out a fairly compelling case. Enjoy…
