The New ‘Realistic Mario’ Puts The ‘Shroom In Mushroom Kingdom

Man, we’re going to miss The Pete Holmes Show. Since it was cancelled, we’ve been happy to get any remaining Ex-Men, Street Fighter Red Tape, and Realistic Mario sketches we can get. We thought the last Realistic Mario, in which we find out Mario is a heartless koopa-killing monster, would be the last. Happily — and trippingly — it isn’t.

This time, instead of facing Yoshi’s wrath or trying to swim through mystery pipes or sustaining factually-incorrect head injuries, Mario is hitting the wrong kind of mushroom blocks. Now we more fully understand why Luigi has had enough of this sh*t.
