When I saw the caption for this, I thought it might be a little cute. It turned out to be hilarious and really well-timed.
Someone set Michael Phelp’s Olympic swimming to the Super Mario Brother’s soundtrack. This mostly involves the water level, but also parts of other levels.
Things I love about this video:
- The opening guy has the right colors to be King Koopa
- The “hurry up” music
- The ending music (both the you-failed and the winning music)
- Watch through to when Michael Phelps levels up (after the credits come on)
Check out the video below:
The video was created by RetroSFX, a website dedicated solely to these types of mashups.
What started as just an online experiment quickly turned into a viral video that had half a million views in just 3 days! From that point on we knew we had something special, so we scrambled and put together an online identity for our future video mashups. We hope you get as much enjoyment out of watching our retroSFX videos as we do making them! And if you love our videos, they were meant to be shared with friends!
