Student Video of Super Mario

By Anant Mathur (June 12, 2010)

A team of students in Japan created this amazing stop-motion video based on the Nintendo game Super Mario Bros. Mario is made of pastel Post-It notes and moves around the school, leaping down stairs and up the classroom walls, avoiding turtles and collecting coins.

While not much is known in the U.S. about the project, according to the blog Tokyo Mango, the video is gaining international buzz. The whiz kids took two weeks and 5,000 Yen (about $55) to create their 1 ½ minute masterpiece for the annual school festival bunkasai.

Take a look. (Watch the left side of the screen to see Mario emerge from the recycling bin.)
