Super Mario Brothers Is The World's Greatest Piece Of Surrealist Art?

I don't know. Art can of course take many forms, and I love anything surreal (that's why Bret Alan blogs here) but Super Mario Brothers? It was never one of my favorite video games even back in the day. And while we're on the subject, what was your favorite video game?

We all know who the Mario Brothers are but have you ever stepped back and tried looking at those games from a fresh perspective? Like you've never seen or heard of them before? They're bananas! There are armored turtles who stand on their hind legs and steal princesses! There are bullets with FACES! We make a case for Mario's inclusion into a canon of art wider than "Video Game": we think Mario is a piece of surrealist artwork.-
