Mario by Hand
Of all the weird Super Mario Bros. YouTube videos, this one is my favorite. Supposedly, someone in Japan programmed a version of Super Mario Bros. that he could control via hand gestures with a webcam. This video is the result. Watch as a large disembodied hand herds scores of tiny Marios, although many of the little guys don’t make it.

Outside of these 13 examples lies a whole world full of Super Mario oddities.  If you have others, please share them in comments.
