There’s less than a month until the release of the Super Mario Bros. Movie AND it’s MAR10 Day, which has created a singularity of marketing synergy rarely before seen – and from that singularity has emerged the most chaotic thing of all: scat singing. The cast of the upcoming movie joined up with The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon and his backing band The Roots to scat-sing a medley of classic Super Mario Bros. NES themes, primarily the Main Theme and the Underground Theme. 



It’s exactly the sort of cute, innocuous, good times fluff you would expect from a late night talk show skit. With the addition of some fun graphical overlays and coordination, it makes for a fun minute and a half of your time. They even get Shigeru Miyamoto in on it at one point!

The Super Mario Bros. Movie releases on April 5th.
