It's-a really him! Mario is busking on Henry Street

Fighting bowsies all over the city.

MARIO ISN’T GETTING much plumbing work these days. To earn a bit of extra cash, he’s hitting the streets with nothing but a keyboard and some crazy 8-bit beats.

He’s playing video game theme tunes for Henry Street shoppers today, and has a big money box with a green mushroom in it.

He’s also a complete HERO.
