In celebration of reaching 120 stars in Super Mario Galaxy — it was pure, brilliant fun throughout, including some deliciously difficult extra levels, and is worth playing just to hear all of the music — I thought I'd post this short video I took last year in Japan, back when New Super Mario Bros. came out.
I hope this brightens your day: twenty five seconds of the World's Happiest Mario.
Try to pause on the suspicious businessman for a great visual. Anyway, thanks, Mario!
PS: Quicktime 7.2.1's new "Export For Web..." feature is totally fantastic. A compressed full-size movie, and two smaller iPhone movies (one for WiFi and one for EDGE), all linked to a reference movie, in one action? So nice.
PPS: It seems you still can't layer a <div> on top of a Quicktime movie, which is why that goofy picture doesn't zoom. Bummer.
