Hey! Watch! Mario and Dali Brothers in Surreality?

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.

You can play Mario, not a painting

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.
