It all started back in the day with that crazy monkey Donkey Kong! Back in the old arcades when Mario was still “Jump Man” this now famous Gorilla was busy owning it up throwing barrels and kidnapping Pauline!

Anyway, here at Mario Mayhem we like to cover most things Nintendo and especially when they are closely related to the Mushroom Kingdom like DK is! This has lead us to create this list of 6 interesting facts you probably didn’t know about the legendary Donkey Kong!

If you are lazy or just like sweet jungle beats there is also a video compilation of these DK facts at the bottom!

I can’t believe how viral and big this death stare from Luigi went! At the time of posting this there are already hundreds of new death stare videos from different angels and against different competitors!

Like most things in life however the original is still the best!

I don’t know if there was a slow news day or if Fox news just really likes Super Mario Kart 8. Either way this is awesome that it made prime time and the commentary from the news reader is hilarious too! Enjoy this short clip from Fox news showing off the now famous Mario Kart 8 Luigi Death Stare!

They see me rollin, they hatin! This made me laugh a lot more than it probably should have. This short 24 second video features a rather menacing Luigi death stare after firing a green turtle shell at Waluigi.

The Ridin’ Dirty sound track makes this clip!

Enjoy!

This would have taken a seriously long time to make! Sure it is a tool assisted play through but along with the maps, editing and actual play time this is an amazing effort! This video shows you an almost complete play through of Super Mario bros 3 on the NES! No warp pipes are used but the hammer does help skip a couple of levels. If you ever wanted to learn how to play SMB3 like a pro this might give you some tips!

If you have a spare 49.30 or if you just really like SMB3 then this video is for you!

Thanks to Chris for sending this in!

This is an awesome little compilation of SMB2 bloopers/parodies all done with sprites. This would have taken ages to make!

The creators are genius! They even managed to somehow work in scenes from the movie “The Mask” and a touching family moment with Birdo (and Luigi)!

You will laugh, you will cry and you will cringe as you go through this hilarious SMB2 parody journey!

Just a heads up there is a bit of adult language and content in this one, especially at the end. Maybe give this one a skip if this doesn’t sound like it’s for you!

Speed skating can be a dangerous sport at the best of times, but what happens when you add in Mario Kart items? Find out with this “Speed skating double dash” from Sochi ;)

Watch as these speed skaters collect item boxes and use the classic Mario Kart items to their advantage!

Who wouldn’t want to see this as an Olympic sport? Or maybe something for Sonic and Mario at the Olympic games?

Epic rap battles of historahhhhhhhhh! There is something amusing about the very concept of the Super Mario Bros rapping but I guess I have seen stranger things on the internet.

Anyway, enjoy this epic rap battle between The Super Mario Bros and The Wright Brothers!

Does anyone else notice a trend with Luigi and Orville’s mustaches? Same barber perhaps!

Super Mario gets a mention in this really interesting video!

It seems that more and more studies are coming out these days that show video games can actually improve areas of your brain such as memory!

Sounds too good to be true right? Well there is certainly something to it but that doesn’t mean you should do nothing but play video games!

A side note for this video, the gamers mentioned that played Mario 64 were actually new to the game. Sadly if the game is no longer a challenge for you (as I suspect may be the case if you are reading this) then the benefits are lost. It’s all about keeping your brain active and having a healthy life balance!

Check out this awesome video and then go and play outside! (more…)
