If Mario Were Real, He'd Scare Children

realmario1.jpgSometimes it’s just best to leave video game icons in the fantasy realm, as this image proves. A Mario fan going by the name of “Pixeloo” created the image to the right by Photoshopping some random faces over a 3D render of the famous plumber. The result, as you can see, is a portrait that’s sure to scar a few childhoods permanently. You can click the image to see a larger version, though you might want to usher any small children out of the room first to avoid the therapy they’ll most likely require from seeing one scary-looking Mario. Seriously, this looks like the sort of picture you’d see on the evening news with the headline “Child Predator on the Loose.”

He’d scare more than just children. I’d freak out if I walked into that guy on the street.

No wonder he was a plumber. I think that face can only be tolerated if it was stuck under a sink somewhere in Brooklyn.

Here’s something to make u feel like an idiot. #1:They’ve already created a realistic Mario in the movie Super Mario Bros. #2: that picture doesn’t scare me. and last but not least….that image of Mario makes him look he has been on crack his whole life….

Wow that looks creepy… Now I have another creepy image to try not to think about as I go to sleep tonight. Great.

1st of all, how can you call THIS ‘realistic’:

“by Photoshopping some random faces over a 3D render of the famous plumber…*

I’m pretty sure if I threw enough random faces over a 3D render of a famous videogame character, I could come up with something creepy too. And is this Gamefront or Pedophobia Central? How the heck is that ‘creepy’? He looks about as scary like a beagle with a cap and a beard.
