Super Mario Bros Goes Underwater In This Awesome Aquarium

The-Super-Mario-Bros-AquariumJust because aquatic beings have no way of gripping a joypad doesn't mean they have to miss out on gaming. One blogger decided it was about time her fishy friends got a taste of the action in Super Mario Bros, and recreated the iconic World 1-1 underwater for her aquarium.

We've all seen those themed fish tanks at the pet store, branded up with various cartoon characters, but as of now they're somewhat pale in comparison to this. Kelsey over at Pixelist painstakingly built various assets from Nintendo's 8-bit classic from Lego, PVC pipes and even lollypop sticks for her aquarium.

Needless to say the end result is nothing short of fantastic and without a doubt a great addition to any game room. While it's unlikely any fish will attempt to climb the flagpole and traverse into World 1-2, nothing's stopping the likes of a 'toad' from doing so!
