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.
