Be Mario — A Public Photo Experiment with Nerd Style


After a 10 hour video game binge, reality transforms into a Scott Pilgrim-esque fantasy.

Is that dinosaur shaped shrub Yoshi incarnate? If you stomp on this mushroom, will you have an instant 2 foot growth spurt?!

Redditor NullPoint84 took note. He hung a handmade Mario question block in public, stood by with camera in hand and invited anyone to reenact the Mario fist jump!

His public experiment resulted in a fantastic photo series of strangers caught mid-air.

Make your own and add a small trampoline for extra high jumps. Make a themed photobooth or fill one with chocolate coins for tasty motivation!
