What happens when you fat finger the jump button while playing Super Mario Bros. and send your buddy Mario flying down a hole? 

If it’s anything like a new video posted by the folks behind the Nukazooka YouTube channel, it isn’t pretty. Mario wakes up surrounded a dozen dead versions of himself, all victims of failed jumps. Then it starts to get really weird as creatures emerge from the shadows—including one that Mario used to call a friend. 

We don’t know about you, but we’re going to be better about hitting those jumps from here on out.
