Whoa whoa whoa, you could actually beat Super Mario Bros? What about that castle that goes on forever until the time runs out? I always assumed that it was supposed to be some sort of statement about the "futility of obsession" or something by the game designers.

I'm pleased that you are showing a much larger percentage of the video with game footage rather than yourself - thank you for dispelling my concerns that these are 'look how pretty I am' videos. Attractive you are; but of course it's games that draw us to this website!

Though I would love to see you getting 'gritty' sitting at a desk actually playing a game; no kind of perverse reasons of course, but more akin to that Irish chap's (forget his name) videos: it makes for a more convincing critic/analyst if we get to see them actually playing games ;)

I pictured this image: 

Mario, a 24 year old Italian able to fix a minor leak under the sink no problem, is a fan of Jess's.  While enjoying too many  mushrooms not sold in stores;) he searches the castles of the UK to see if Jess is perhaps inside.  Castle guard, "Sorry mate, maybe she's in another castle?... ... (under his breath)yeah right..."

Kinda creepy, but if that could happen, maybe the idea of Mario isn't too far fetched.

can't really put my finger on why, but I don't feel this "meme" really stacks up against the others

This meme was a meme before memes even existed. Since I was like 5 my friends and I would say that phrase whenever we failed to find/get something.


Also, anyone else get upset when Mario didn't get all the coins at about :12?

Jessywoo, Shnookylumps, Angelbear, Light of my Life... erm....nice video. Personally I adore Toad and always picked him in the Mario Kart games simply because i've always been a sucker for the underdog. Toad is under appreciated and definitely needs his own game series, cereal brand and designer underwear range. Make it so Miyamoto!

I really don't think Gamespot (or Jess or whoever produces these videos) really knows what a meme is.

Hi Jess! God darn I'm beautiful and I'm wearing an awesome T-shirt. I couldn't keep that info to myself.

Now that we got that out of the way. Your choice of meme is flawless. It's a classic and everyone knows it.

Congratulations! Job well done and all that.

Here's one I think you might have missed (too lazy to check). The Zerg Rush!

A gamer not knowing where this originated from is like having to urinate and not knowing how to do so...

If you did not or do not know where that famous phrase came from...?

Since you are wearing a T-Shirt with a Bioshock reference, would you kindly make an episode about the "Would You Kindly" meme in Bioshock?

I played Super Mario Bros. in the arcades back in the day.

Now I'm trying to figure out if I'm old school... or just old!

Seriously, though, video game memes don't really get more classic than this one.
