Nintendo celebrated the 30th birthday of Super Mario Bros. with the release of this excellent little video documenting the creation of that iconic game.
Shigeru Miyamoto explains his inspiration and process for how the lasting gem came into being.
Technically, Sept. 13 was the 30th anniversary, but who knows when that is relative to today, what with modern time zones and all. So, Google got into the spirit today with a nifty little Easter egg.
If you type "Super Mario Bros." into search, a question box will appear in the results and you can go ahead and collect all the coins you want.
Unfortunately, you do not receive an extra life if you click it 100 times.
Happy belated b-day Super Mario Bros. Thanks for introducing me to a life long habit of reality avoidance.
