Blame it on the afterhomework marathon sessions playing Super Mario Bros. during our formative years, but walking down the street we find ourselves singing the distinct doo do doo of the theme music almost daily. So does Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson, who confessed the wordless 8-bit sounds have been something of an obsession amid all the publicity chaos for the film. Stars — they're just like us!
We like to think that playing these songs in our head while walking through a crowded mall or while navigating public transit helps us to harness the powers of Mario. Watch Peeta himself interpret the songs of your childhood in the video below.
