Get ready to have your nostalgia pumped full of steroids.
For those of you who have ever wondered what a mashup between Mario and Morrissey (or The Smiths) would be like, here’s your answer. From the twisted, awesome minds at “16 Bits da Depressão,” this short animation features Morrissey and Mario making a quick trip through some of the most recognizable worlds in video game history, all while a chiptune version of The Smiths’ “This Charming Man” plays as the soundtrack.
Morrissey starts off alone in a modified version of Mario’s classic opening.
Sadly, Morrissey doesn’t actually have a brother. Maybe Luigi (or Johnny Marr) will fill that role.
Of course, The Pope of Mope is too cool to run around, so he lets Mario take him on a chill ride.
That’s my kind of ride share.
But the duo makes a wrong turn and end up in a strange neighborhood.
Sonic is not chasing after Morrissey cause he’s a fan.
Finally, Morrissey gets some backup — The Smiths — and plays a show for everyone.
💦💦💦💦 Those. Moves. 💦💦💦💦
For those of you that have the tune stuck in your head, here’s the original version of The Smiths “This Charming Man.”
