Super Mario Compact Disco

Someone with a little too much free time spliced together animation bits from various ads for Mario products and set them to music. Enjoy. Don't question why.

Personally, I think the whole thing works better with the speakers turned off. VideoGamesBlogger states that the song in question is "Save Me With Your Charm," which comes from the album Super Mario Compact Disco. This 1993 Japanese release, performed by the Ambassadors of Funk, mixes techno beats with some basic bleeps and blips borrowed from various Super Mario games. While I can't personally vouch for the quality of the album, I think the cover art speaks for itself.

My favorite part: The fact that despite Mario, Yoshi and and Luigi wearing their hats backwards, their emblematic letters still face forwards.

The same Youtube user, DokiDokiJapan, made another one to a dance remix of Aneka's "Japanese Boy," one of the worst songs ever but also one of the most terminally catchy. This second video utilizes a lot of the same animation, lamely.
