Watch a cool stop-motion Super Mario Brothers video

Guy creates paper-based animation of first level

Check out this cool video that takes the first level of Super Mario Brothers and converts it to a stop-motion animation. It's so good that at first you don't realize that it's stop-motion. A nice touch is the "fail" at the end of the level, which most of us have experienced when playing this video game.

I'm not completely sure why Super Mario Brothers inspires so many animation and other types of videos, but they are definitely fun to watch.
