Super Mario Brothers, as viewed from 1988

Found this youtube video of an Inside Edition piece from 1988 about the then-latest craze, Super Mario Brothers. There's a lot to love in this video: the nostalgia, the fact that it's hosted by Bill "We'll do it live" O'Reilly, the "game councilor" with the huge mullet, and even Howard Phillips.

Being a gamer myself and growing up with Mario, it's actually interesting to see an outsider's perspective as Nintendo took gaming by storm.
