The lights are on
If you don’t know Charles Martinet’s name, then you probably at least know his voice. He’s the man behind the mustaches of Mario, Luigi, Wario, and others. What you may also not know is that he has an Instagram account filled with Nintendo-themed goofs and gags.
Martinet is currently in Chile, and he’s brought some of his friends to see the sights and enjoy the local cuisine (with some special results). Click on the images to see the videos on Martinet’s Instagram page.
Martinet began working for Nintendo in the early 1990s, but first voiced the character in a game when Super Mario 64 was released in 1996. Beyond Nintendo, Martinet has appeared in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time, Jet Set Radio Future, and more. You can follow him on Instagram for more videos starring Mario and friends.
