Apparently Yoshi wasn't around to give him a ride.

Mario’s jumping and sliding skills come in handy as he races to make a real-life Tokyo subway train in a new Super Smash Bros. live-action fan trailer.

Dean Wright, a 3D artist and filmmaker living in Japan, put together the short. When Mario realizes in the middle of a plumbing supply run that he has somewhere to be, Mario puts his platformer skills to good use.

Commuters on public transportation could learn a thing or two from this video. And while it’s not an official video from Nintendo, it still makes for an excellent commercial.

Super Smash Bros. 3DS is being released on Oct. 7, and Super Smash Bros. Wii U  will be out this holiday season.
