super smash bros irl, mega man launching arm rocket
It might also get you blow up.

Many of us are excited for the new Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, but some of us may be a bit more excited than others.

Comedy troupe 3GI have been running a Super Smash Bros. tournament series for a few years. This tournament doesn’t involve CRT televisions, however, but rather real people and real fire power.

Yes, it’s live action fighting, straight from a backyard somewhere in suburbia. And it's awesome. The team dresses up as their favorite characters from Smash Bros, and start launching fireworks and tasers to mimic Mega-Man’s blaster or Pikachu’s thunderbolt.

It’s exactly as insane and potentially dangerous as you might expect. Seriously kids, don’t try this at home.
