Whenever I think of Salvador Dali, I immediately think of Super Mario Bros. and vice versa. That is probably the most untrue sentence I have written on this website. However, after watching this video from the PBS web hub, The Idea Channel, connecting those two mustachioed gentlemen isn’t that far off base.
I remember having conversations about how strange it was that Mario ate mushrooms to grow and implemented different flying apparati to help him on his journey. Never once did I ever connect to surrealism. To me it was just a trip inside the weird minds of the people of Nintendo.
