Google Launches 30th Anniversary Super Mario Bros. Easter Egg

Happy birthday, Super Mario Bros.


To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros. franchise, Google has rolled out a special Easter egg that pays homage to Nintendo's iconic platforming series. First, go to Google and search "Super Mario Bros."

A Question Box will appear that you can click on to earn coins and hear the famous sound. I clicked probably 100-plus times and nothing extra happened, but it's still a fun little Internet thing to enjoy today.
