Did Coldplay rip Mario's Invincibility theme? And other interesting Mario conspiracies
The Gamer from Mars will discuss some of the most popular theories throughout the Super Mario Bros. franchise.
I think that the invincibility theme mayyyyy be a coincidence, although the Communist talk....hmmm... I won't see Mario's mustache the same way again.
The Coldplay thing... Just wow. Still that was ingenious and their best song in my opinion.
I'm not sure if this has been said already, but I kinda want to through this out there:
I don't think the Coldplay Theory Holds up at all. Just listening to the two songs, They sound nothing alike. The fact that they sound alike when played together is an audio trick on your mind. For proof of this, I refer you to GameTrailer's Pop Fiction episode about Totaka's Song: http://www.gametrailers.com/full-episodes/aigzia/pop-fiction-episode-21-...
Some of the other Theories seem plausible, but the fact that you don't provide any Real evidence to them seems to make them weak. Sorry, man, but keep it up. I see this having potential.
Certainly seems really, really and I mean reeeeeeaaaly far fetched.
Lack ti tude?? aren't you sure it called La-kitu?
Guys Mario wears a hat..... who else wears a hat? The pope! COINCIDENCE??????
That last one: Yes coincidence. Similar rhythm does not mean ripped off. lol.
Regarding the invincibility theme, I think it took some inspiration from 'Whats the Buzz' from 1971 musical Jesus Christ Superstar. Listen; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-eM83gz0Zc
HE'S WEARING RED THEREFORE COMMUNISM.
The communist theory is "balderdash." Super Mario Brothers is a spin off of Donkey Kong and both are games made by Japan, which is a capitalist nation that supports an emperor.
These conspiracy theories were not backed up very well.
The only Mario Theory that actually works out of all these is that Mario 3 is just a staged play.
I'm pretty sure that's what the creators intended to begin with.
The whole Viva la Vida thing has been tied to other songs predating it and even predating Mario's release in 85.
Mario's too much of a coin hoarder to to support communism.
Well, if Mario was trying to support communism, he certainly didn't succeed.
Hah Super Stalin Bros.!
I think these theories are funny. I still enjoy Mario as just a game, though.
Haha, These are great, love it. I don't think it's a stretch to associate things once you adjust your mind to find coincidences (or not) to point out.
The one who thought of the communist theory must've really been stretching.
