A ‘Duck Dynasty’ star channeled Super Mario on ‘Dancing With the Stars’
This performance sent the competition packing faster than a shooting Koopa shell.
This season of Dancing With the Stars has given us plenty of indelible pop culture moments, perhaps the most memorable being Alfonso Ribeiro breaking out his signature Fresh Prince of Bel-Air moves with the long-awaited Carlton dance. But last night, a performance courtesy of Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson and her partner Mark Ballas gave the crowd a Nintendo-inspired throwback that literally took things to the next level.
After a samba performance that earned the twosome a 38 out of 40, the duo decided to step up their game with a freestyle performance inspired by everyone’s favorite plumber and princess. As soon as the 8-bit music began to play and the two emerged from their respective green pipes, it was game over as the duo performed a Super Mario Bros. routine complete with Luigi, Toad, and of course a question mark block.
The freestyle earned the duo a perfect score, advancing them to the finale and sent YouTuber Bethany Mota back to her a life online faster than a Koopa shell.
