I picked up a brochure today at my local game store and it features pictures of some Japanese dudes dressed up as Mario & Luigi.
Somehow, Captain Lou Albano was snubbed for this role.
I checked out the Nintendo Japan website and found this commercial:

I don't care, I think that's fucking great stuff. They need a mock Mario and Luigi here(I think Cap'n Lou and....other guy) are too old for it, but I'm sure there's someone who could pull it off.

Hot Mario Bros. indeed.

I think they should air the commercial here in the US, without any translations.

Is it just me or do these guys look like a gay couple in love if you take the whole Mario aspect out?

The noses look like prosthetics, although I can't see the line of distinction where it is applied.

So either they were expertly put on, or those two guys have huge honkers in real life.

Totally - I think that would be a genius move - I would guess that it's not going to happen but I can't believe that they haven't thought of this already - and it would save them some dough on advertising production costs.

That's the first thing I noticed too. I guess they think all Europeans have large noses.

:applause: Not near enough Group Aycks love around here. Just last night, I made Cereal Bawks my outgoing voicemail message.

And also, the last picture suggests to me that they should switch the actors for the roles, as the "Mario" guy seems to have a much more gaunt face that would better suit Luigi.

You guys NEED to watch one of the new commercials:

Click on the 4th link at the bottom of the player to see how a Japanese man imitates a Frenchman, an Italian, and an American. Good stuff.

Salmon:

It appears they are flash movies, so go download this IE plugin: http://www.browserto.../downloads.html

Then you can click on the icon it makes in the toolbar at the top (looks like a film canister/blue disk), choose SWF Options -> From this site, and then save each file in there. If you save them to your computer - click on the file name at the top, then "Save As.." at the bottom. Then you can just use IE to play them on your computer locally.

I'm sure there's an equivalent for Firefox if someone is using that.

Edit: Looks like this works with Mozilla as well!
