Nerds everywhere should strive to create a Super Mario Brothers aquarium.
I am the kind of gay who can’t even keep a plant alive, so fish are absolutely out of the question for me. As the owner of a video game startup though, I can surely appreciate a theme, and I believe fangirls and boys everywhere are really important to the longevity of a video game franchise. That is why this Super Mario Brothers aquarium is so awesome.
Created by graphic designer Kelsey Kronmiller in a 55-gallon aquarium, the fish tank is based on World 8-1 from Super Mario Bros. complete with actual Lego bricks from the LEGO store, carefully applied vinyl strips, and spray-painted PVC pipes for the tunnels. She even included vinyl stickers to mimic the actual TV screen.
Although I play Mario sometimes, I was never a superfan. I can surely appreciate the hard work she put into this, though, and I am sure her fish are having the time of their lives living in a video game.
