First things first: if you don’t know about Luigi’s hilariously menacing glares in Mario Kart 8, go ahead and get acquainted with the year’s best video game meme right now. We’ll wait here.

All done? Great. Now you can fully appreciate the artistry of this live-action homage, filmed at Anime Expo 2014 in Los Angeles. It seems that the lesser Mario brother is no longer targeting just Nintendo characters—no robot, superhero, or ninja is safe from his shells.

Hate on, you mustachioed madma. One day that plumbing business will be all yours.
