The Mario Bros. Get a Drug-Fueled Goodfellas Treatment

Plumbers can only climb so high in Brooklyn—and Mario and Luigi are looking to fly.

In this fan film by Nick Gregorio, Nintendo’s platforming heroes are given the violent, drug-fueled Scorsese overhaul, with Luigi assuming the role of Ray Liota’s Henry Hill. Toad is a coke-snorting kingpin; bob-ombs become Bobby Bombs; Bullet Bill didn’t exactly need renaming, but now he’s a person instead of an anthropomorphic projectile.

Has Goodfellas been done to death? A little. But the execution on this short is so on-point it’s hard not to love.
