The Super Mario Bros. Prophecy


As you heard on the show we watched a bunch of horrible video game movies, but none were more horrible than 1993's Super Mario Bros. The movie went on and we got our jollies laughing at the ridiculousness of it all until the end when we both had a physical reaction. We watched as images of New York City made way for the Twin Towers and then it happened, in streams of billowing black smoke the image of the Twin Towers changed to the image on the right. It was strange enough to see the Twin Towers as part of the old NYC skyline but that image with the surrounding smoke was terrifying. We knew we had seen something far too similar. The photo from FEMA taken on 9-11 said it all. We couldn't believe what we were seeing.

We don't believe in conspiracy theories but you have to admit this looks pretty freaky! Besides, anybody who has seen the live action Super Mario Bros movie knows that something evil must have been at least partly responsible for it!
