8-Bit Pickers: Super Mario Game of Thrones Mashup
As any self-respecting nerd might do, I channeled my excitement around the release of the Game of Thrones Season 4 trailer by scavenging every nook of the a Internet for a House Stark fix to tide me over to the debut.
Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon the design below, smartly melding retrogaming Nintendo art and the world of the White Walkers through dual purpose nerdery. It turns out that the Game of Thrones / Super Mario World mashup t-shirt gem displayed below and unearthed via the Scruffy Pixel Pinterest account is just the tip of the pop culture + Super Mario mashup iceberg.
I’m going to withhold the many, many Game of Thrones / Super Mario puns that come to mind looking at this t-shirt design. One can only hope that block is hiding a pretty robust stash of dragonglass if we’re expecting Jon & Sam to make it through 8 worlds of this stuff.
Artist BazNet is clearly not content to waste his Super Mario Brothers literary talents on just one pop culture phenomenon.
Of course any legitimate nerd would probably hope that the grey version above is meant to represent War Machine and not simply a sanded down Iron Man, but alas, the world may never know.
One can only hope some kind of superstar techno duo is next on the artist’s list to enshrine through Super Mario mashup treatment.
