Everyone loves Mario. There's a reason why he's among the most iconic characters in video games. But how would he fair in the real world?

Done by visual effects artist Dean Wright, this video has us meet Mario as he's buying plumbing equipment. Before he can make any decisions, however, our favorite plumber realizes he's late for something. Check out the video below to see for yourself what's got him running and jumping through Tokyo.

The video plays out like a really cool Super Smash Bros. advertisement, one that we wouldn't mind seeing a TV spot for. Though it's fan-made, Nintendo has shown that they aren't above making ads from popular media.
