I'm in the "Super Mario Brothers 3 is the best Mario" camp myself, but I'm glad they used Super Mario World graphics for this, since it just makes for beautiful pixel art.

I was wondering how much of it was photoshop magic, but the (very charming) behind the scenes video makes it look like almost all of it was real.

This is great. I hope they do more.

I have a filthy mind. Glad I was wrong.

The attention to detail in these videos is amazing, almost anal in nature

Oh, I love these - especially the SMB3 video. I make perler bead pixel crafts/gifts/magnets in my spare time (because they can be very tedious projects, which I find relaxing) but I've never attempted anything as ambitious as this! Very cool stuff.

This reminds me of PCKTKNFE, very cool music video with bead sprites.
