Just when we think Adele couldn't get anymore awesome, she finds a way to prove us wrong!

The Skyfall singer is preparing to head back across the pond with baby Angelo and beau Simon Konecki, and apparently she's filling her new home on the Sussex coast with retro arcade games!

Adele has reportedly dropped £15,000 on classics like Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and even a couple of pinball machines! For those of you who don't know the exchange rate off the top of you heads, that's more than $22,000!!

street in spain named after super mario bros

How would U like to live on a street named after Super Mario Bros?

The Arcosur Neighborhood Association of Zaragoza in northeast Spain seem to LOVE the idea!

On Saturday, Arcosur residents celebrated the unveiling of "Avenida de Super Mario Bros."

Highlights of the celebration included attendees wearing fake black mustaches, a dancing Mario mascot, and a violin/cello duet performing the Mario Bros' immortal theme song.

For those of you out there who would prefer to live on a different video-game themed street, Sonic The Hedgehog, Space Invaders, and The Legend of Zelda streets are in the works.

Here's what Arcosur neighborhood association president Antonio Almudi Miranda had to say about naming streets after video games:

"We are people who grew up living with video games. We know them very well. I'm 25. I'm the same age as Mario."

To commemorate the opening of the street, as well as Super Mario's 25th anniversary, Nintendo reps handed out prizes during Saturday's unveiling of Avenida de Super Mario Bros.

Would U like to live on a street named after Super Mario Bros? If not, what video game-themed street would U want to live on?
