Ah, a Nineties memory. You’re a kid, enjoying the new Super Mario game but your mum hasn’t hoovered the house in days and dust got into the cartridge. Time to pull it out again and give it a blow.
Yes…its Japanese men with moustaches!. It’s from a Mario Kart DS advertisement, featuring Hiroyuki Yabe as Luigi and Takashi Okamura as the ring-collector like Mario. Both actors were members of a comedy outfit called Ninety-Nine.
While a tad controversial, this GIF is a really funny homage to that most awesome sauce of retro video games, Super Mario. Mario has to get his running shoes on after a local steals a ride on his beloved dinosaur Yoshi.

Super Mario, the Italian plumber who has a love of gold rings, dinosaurs and rescuing abducted minor royalty, meets his match in a rather humble, but ruthlessly efficient ninja assassin. Another gem from my classic GIFs collection.
Contains cartoon violence and gore. I love Mario really.
