Mario the Multi-Ethnic Guy

Justin over at 365daysoffilm.com shared this snarky poster with us. Not sure if anyone could be offended since it appears to include almost everyone. Well, except whitey. The English-speaking reference is pretty weak. Maybe if it had added “…and in the 1990’s played mostly by WASP kids whose parents could afford a Nintendo unit.”

Mario from Nintendo

We stand corrected. No one from the Middle East is represented (although they offend easily, so that’s probably a good thing). Tonga also filed a complaint. King ʻAhoʻeitu ʻUnuakiʻotonga Tukuʻaho asked that this line be included: “and doesn’t need Mario to help Tongans beat up Somoans, because they can do that with both arms tied behind their backs, thanks very much…” Sorry, King Aho-una-…toka-ohunaboonabena (um…how do you spell that again?) there’s no more room on the poster.
