Super Mario Propaganda Paints Plumbers As the Enemy

HankMan:
FOR GLORY OF THE MUSHROOM (kingdom)!
I wonder how much Bowser had to shell out for this.

Boom!

OT: Pretty cool art.

Is it ethical to ask your soldiers to continue fighting after their death?

Mario's response to this grave insult to the people of the Mushroom Kingdom:

I remember seeing that YEARS ago on Newgrounds. Good times(?).

SpAc3man:
Those actually remind me of Soviet WWII propaganda posters... My mum has a small collection of some reprints.

They pretty much remind of ANY WW2 propaganda poster. It was all the same back then: -it's your duty to fight back nazis/russians/you name it.

angry_flashlight:
Mario's response to this grave insult to the people of the Mushroom Kingdom:

Comrades! Pay not attention to the lies and propaganda of the fascist Koopa state! Be not dissuaded by her power-up hiding treachery or ledge-camping depravity!

The whole world is looking to you as a force capable of destroying the brigand hordes of Koopa invaders. The enslaved peoples of the Mushroom Kingdom under the yoke of the Koopa invaders are looking to you as their liberators. A great mission of liberation has fallen to your lot.

Be worthy of this mission! The war you are waging is a war of liberation, a just war.

Let the victorious banner of the great Toadstool fly over your heads!

Utter destruction to the Koopa invaders!

Death to the Koopa armies of occupation!

Long live our glorious Mushroom Kingdom, her freedom and her independence!

Under the banner of Toadstool-onward to victory!

These are pretty great.

To mark this occasion, ladies and gentlemen I give you The Koopa National Anthem:

Нерушимый союз свободных республик
Всегда объединяет великий царь Боузер
Да здравствует созданный волей народов,
Тот, могучий Купа Королевства!

Хвала нашей свободной Грибное Королевство -
Стойкий плод дружбы черепахи!
Купа партия - народная власть
Приводит нас к торжеству коммунизма ведет!

солнце свободы светило нам через бури,
И Боузер показал нам Великий путь:
Он поднял народы делать праведные,
Он вдохновил нас выполнить большую работу и дела!

Хвала нашей свободной Грибное Королевство -
Стойкий плод дружбы черепахи!
Купа партия - народная власть
Приводит нас к торжеству коммунизма ведет!

В победе бессмертных идей коммунизма
Мы видим будущее нашей страны,
И к корпусу флаг нашей славы Королевства
Мы должны навсегда остаться всего сердца правда!

Хвала нашей свободной Грибное Королевство -
Стойкий плод дружбы черепахи!
Купа партия - народная власть
Приводит нас к торжеству коммунизма ведет!

Tom Goldman:
So find your local recruiting office today, and follow your leader's clown-faced hovercraft into battle. You won't regret it, until you actually see Mario and he takes you down just by jumping, best case scenario.

Nah, best case scenario is that due to your work and the work of your brethren the dreaded plumber will simply Jump over you due to the time limit ticking down thus making you less of a target.

That spells almost victory!

Also, that song is awesome Jumpingbean3.

Bigsmith:
So, um, where can I buy these from. :3

The link in the original story. But be prepared to pay $80 for the set of 4 (and they're only 11" x 17"...not exactly huge prints)

Nice! I want to buy them.

On a side note, I hope most people understand by now that Sovjet Russie was not communist. It was a dictatorship badly disguised as communism.

I would rather fight with Mario.

I am amazed at the creativity of these types of posters. Big applause to the creator.

This was pretty cool... as was the People's Mario. XD

where can I buy these? Or have them on T-shirts.

Coffinshaker:
ha! this is pretty good!

I always liked the old propaganda art (don't get me wrong... I don't like the ideology behind it, just the art and absurdness of it), especially when it gets appropriated in ways such as this.

I know right!
I actually stuck 1950s style anti communisum posters all over my dads laptop once.
The reaction was, intresting...

um, no, thats oka. have you seen mario's kill to death ratio? or the mortality rates? I mean, this is just ONE guy. Not even a full army, but ONE FREAKING GUY!!

Dear Friends
I fear the war has already escalated

To paraphrase what I once said about Starship troopers:

Yay mushrooms, boo turtles.

Join Today! Service Guarantees Citizenship!

Would you like to know more?

The 4th ad was a killer.

Fav one is the one with the Boos.

Whoever did this, he was probably on 'shrooms

JThai:

I fear that their Go-Karting has escalated as well...

God help us all

Are all propaganda posters made in this kind of style?
