Fly the Flag from Super Mario Bros.!

by Paul Strauss

As much as I loved playing through the pipes and snacking on mushrooms in Super Mario Bros., there’s nothing quite as satisfying as making that perfect jump onto the flag at the end of a level.¬†Now you can live out that part of the game in real life, thanks to this life-size flag made to look just like the one from the game.

It’s made by James Bit, the same guy who brought us those¬†fighting game wall decals and the equally awesome Zelda fireplace and secret passage floor art.

The flag is a dead-ringer for the one at the end of each level in Super Mario Bros., complete with a big pixelated green mushroom on a white background. Each one measures 2′ x 3′ and is made from durable nylon, so you can actually fly these outdoors in the wind. I so want to see these flying on every house in my neighborhood.

You can get your hands on the Super Mario Bros. flag over on Etsy for $50 (USD). I really want him to make the version with Bowser on it next.

James advises: “Sliding down them is not recommended unless you have 6, 3, or 1 second left on the clock.” And if you don’t know what that means, what sort of NES fanboy or girl are you?

[Thanks for the tip, Justin!]
