5. He’s in worryingly good shape.
I can’t go up, like, 10 stairs without getting winded. Mario can SPRINT up stairs all day.
10. He’s a killer on the dance floor.
They even named a dance after him!
11. He comes from wealth and class.
His brother owns his own mansion! It’s a bit of a fixer-upper, but still… property owner.
17. Mario is a Renaissance man. He’s a gifted musician…
19. …an accomplished stage actor…
(If you pay attention, you’ll realize that Super Mario Bros. 3 is all actually just an elaborate stage show.)
20. …and he also made the rare, successful transition from TV to film.
I’m seeing a future EGOT winner.
