There is no way my parents could have known what a world of pain they were dropping me in by simply giving me the name Mario. It was 1984, and Mario was my dad's name. THEY COULD NOT HAVE KNOWN WHAT WOULD HAPPEN. But now all the Super Mario/Where's Luigi/ItsAMe/Wario jokes I've ever been the butt of are worth it because this lamp is so damn cool. That's right people. With the pull of a lamp chain, I am free.
The Mario Bros. Theme Industrial Pipe Lamp appears to be a one-of-a-kind piece from pipe-themed lamp maker TRoweDesigns on Etsy. Mario dangles from the chain, and when you turn the lamp on and off, you pull him into a Warp Pipe. So fun!
TRoweDesigns should really devote more time to these lamps because they are freaking wonderful, and I'm afraid I might not be able to scrounge together the cash before they run out. If you want to buy this for me (or yourself) to make me (or yourself) happy you better hop to it because there is only one! It'll be the best $180 you ever spend. Thanks, Mom!
