|"Game of Thrones"|
You can always tell when talented animators have too much time on their hands, because they start mixing things up like in this crazy animation.
NicksplosionFX has created an animation which imagines how the intro to tv show "Game of Thrones" would look as set in Nintendo's 16-bit Super Mario World video game.
Don't tell me you're too young to have ever heard of Super Mario Brothers. Or that you've never heard of Nintendo. Some things are eternal!
Videos like this are great for showing how far animation has come. Super Mario Brothers was considered cutting edge in the '90s. Now, it just looks sick next to all the fancy CGI that they can do for even the most minor of video games. And the little things like the background music also has leapt far into the future since kids pulled out the Nintendo and went to work.
It's always cool when folks go to the trouble of doing stuff like this, takes a lot of skill and a lot of time to crank a complete project like this out.

Mario always pays his debts... With Dragon Coins! This is the show open for Game of Thrones... if it were set in the World of Super Mario!
