Lots of people fantasized about this one. How would the world look through the eyes of this man? Super Mario, Nintendo’s true moneymaker, is used for this video. The creator finally gave us a glance of Super Mario Bros 1 in first person view. The brand ‘ Super Mario’ was good for 318 million(!) copies sold for several game consoles, so how could this NOT get viral. The video is up since March 17 and generated 7.2 million views. From the 98K votes, 98,5% liked it. Compared with the original stuff, about this video we say, level up!

This video has more than 500.000 views in only 2 days! See how Justin Bieber, his manager Scooter and his “swaggercoach” Ryan jump on stage while Willow Smith is performing her “Whip my Hair” in Justin’s opening act. Willow is rocking her braids as a true rockstar while Scooter and Ryan are jumping around as back-up dancers also wearing neon extensions in their hair. In the meanwhile, Bieber is banging on a cowbell and in the end her brother Jaden tries to out-dance his sister. Despite all the chaos on stage, Willow keeps it cool!

This video of Top Spin 4 with Serena Williams (as worlds sexiest tennis player)  and Rileah Vanderbilt (as worlds sexiest tennis gamer) dressed in suggestive outfits and grunting, has been making his way around the internet the past few days.  Our colleague Dimitri Bauer already posted about the question if the video leaked online or that it was a marketing stunt.
