Ever since Super Smash Bros. Ultimate revealed that the Piranha Olant would be joining the fight, the fighter fandom has gotten weird - and hilariously so. With the Freddie Mercury biopic movie doing so well in theaters, it was only nature that the two concepts meet. Thanks to the (apparently bored/awesome) staff over at a GameStop store, we now have a Bohemian Rapsody x Super Mario Bros. mashup that we didn't know we needed until now.
The best part is that this is totally easy to recreate, because the Piranha Plant hand puppets are actually available to buy - and they're pretty affordable! Available at ThinkGeek and GameStop for $19.97, this adorable collector's item apparently makes the perfect musical tribute too!
What's even better than the hand puppet itself is ThinkGeek's description: "These fearsome plants are a staple in Super Mario universe. Sometimes they come from pipes, sometimes they grow from the ground, and sometimes they spit fireballs. It's safe to say at this point that they are pretty hungry and have our red and green overall-clad heroes as top choices on the menu. We aren't saying you could eat a whole person with a puppet, but it's worth a shot!"
So grab yourself one, use it to sing whatever tune you want, and be merry because SuperSmash Bros. Ultimate is bringing its own Piranha Plant experience when it drops exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018.
