Crapper Jim Shea found this amazing clip up there and made my day!

He writes:

Seeing B. Amoda’s recent ICFYT submission reminded me of this even more wacky and zany video featuring some of Japan’s biggest wrestling stars!

We got Jumbo Tsuruta as Super Mario, Giant Baba as Gulliver, and a bunch more of AJPW superstars.

Baba’s face at 4:00 is classic as it’s the “Wow, these drugs are kicking in now” face.

Oh my goodness!

I think I need a moment to fully process what I’ve just seen.

So it’s one part Super Mario Bros, one part Gulliver’s Travels,  and a whole bunch of plain old CRAZY all mixed together with a dash of Japanese wrestlers all acting hammy and having a ton of fun!

I love it! The fact that I can’t understand a word of what they’re saying just makes me love it that much more.

I know absolutely nothing about Japanese wrestling, but who cares?l You don’t really need to know Japanese wrestling to know that this is simply outstanding!

Of course, as cool as this is; it will never hold the nostalgic memories for me as that other wrestler who pretended to be Mario!

Boy oh boy! It really makes me want to play the actual Super Mario Bros. game!

Hang on, let me just finish up the castle in level 3 here, and…

Thank You Mario Princess Castle Nintendo Parody

OOOOOH FUUUUUDGE!

    Am I on drugs? What just happened? Can anyone translate this?

    I have no idea what was going on in that video and yet I sat and watched it the whole way through because I just could not take my eyes off of it. If I were to judge it as though I were on Iron Chef, my comment would be: “This makes no sense and confuses my brain very much. I like it, yes.”

    HUGE fan of the classic AJPW and that whole era of japanese wrestling in general. This video is INSANE.

  4. John C says:

    This is why I was always excited when the Japanese tapes I’d order would come with the commercials. They’re the greatest and potentially most nightmarish things you’ll ever see. I want to dream tonight about Baba-chopping Bowser.
