This Eminem x Mario mash-up goes the extra mile

Palms are sweaty, Mario’s spaghetti. Try not to lose yourself in this bafflingly brilliant, and oddly satisfying, Eminem x Mario mash-up

Eminem x Mario mash-up: The rapper Eminem is visible in a screenshot from a music video, but he is wearing Mario's cap and moustache

It feels like sincere mash-ups are a dying art, but this incredible Eminem x Mario mash-up has taken me back to the days of Wii Sports remixes and cuts of Beyoncé over Kirby music. The talented dustin1776 has posted on Reddit a brilliant and painstakingly tuned marriage of Eminem’s seminal hit Lose Yourself from 8 Mile, mixed with the Level 1 theme from Super Mario Bros.

There’s something fascinatingly hypnotic about this as not only have they been mashed together to work surprisingly well, but the extra effort of putting the original music video over footage of the original Super Mario Bros is the icing on the cake. I can’t say I’ll be putting this in my DJ sets, but it’s going to be stuck in my head for a while.

If you want to watch this monstrosity for yourself, be sure to check out the original Reddit post here and give it an upvote. The comments are a mixture of confusion and admiration, with the top post capturing the mood perfectly by saying “What an interesting time to have ears.” We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

If you just can’t stomach the thought of going over to Reddit where the original creator posted it, we’ve popped a link below with the full video, but as we said, this is not from the original creator. Whoever is responsible for… This… Should get everything they deserve.
