What would happen if Lara Croft teamed up with Master Chief and Assassin's Creed III's Ratonhnhaké:ton (aka Connor) and stole Mario's power-ups? That's the question asked and answered in spectacular fashion by Corridor Digital, a production company that specialises in superb life-action videos mainly spoofing videogames.
Powered Up! is its latest three-minute masterpiece, and it's garnered over three million views on YouTube in just a week. Impressive stuff.
Mario is obviously none too happy about his prized treasures being nabbed by rival games characters, so takes them on in a battle that proves that sometimes you don't need guns, hidden blades or a T-shirt that's a bit too tight to be practical. You can get away with bouncing on people's heads using your backside.
The team has also posted a behind-the-scenes video showing how the impressive action was staged. We also recommend you check out Corridor Digital's YouTube channel and Facebook page. There are plenty of other previously posted vids to watch too.
