Vlog Ep. 125: Leveling Up with Super Mario

Tonight's #BaduyPride episode was all about the Super Mario franchise. While our exposure to Nintendo consoles has been rather limited in recent years, we can't deny the power and influence of Mario as a franchise, a brand, or even as the Nintendo mascot. He really does live up to the "Super" part of his name.

Mario and his extended family and many enemies aren't going to go anywhere anytime soon. He's too much a part of our shared cultural experience. I think he's reached a point where he's bound to outlive Nintendo itself were things to come to that. If we can still love the guy despite not actually playing the games in recent years, it still says something about him and his impact on the world.
