Communist Mariofesto

The Super Mario Brothers is no mere video game, but a subtle Communist propaganda campaign — and I had no idea. Mario wears red, resembles Stalin, raises the Russian star and deposes a king. Well, I'm convinced.

Celarent has made it all the more obvious with a socialist realism version of the game, complete with backing by the Russian Red Army Choir. Its gorgeous. (Link via Miss Cellania)
