Mario: Cool Story Bro!


There’s really no need for me to say anything. I took this from 9gag and posted this on Quora where it already has gotten some 900+ hits in the last 4 hours. Just wanted to repost it here to share with the WordPress community. I love this little comic in so many ways. Not exactly relevant for my blog but whatever.

I first saw this picture on my Flipboard a couple of days ago. Suffice to say, I was very much impressed by it. Brilliant concept, brilliant execution, and in my opinion, a better Godzilla Origins story than all the pollution/radioactive nonsense. Children and adults alike will appreciate the simplicity of it all. And anyone who has ever gotten high in their lives will appreciate the deeper meaning to it. Mmmmm…shrooms.

It also goes to show how powerful a brand / recognisable image can be when used appropriately. I can only hope that one day, I will be able to design a character or story as simple and as endearing as these immortalised characters.
