Game On! Egyptian President Gets ‘Super Mario’ Powers In Spoof Video

Think “Super Mario” is one of the few already-popular characters who have won over the gaming masses? Think again.

A new video, expected to go viral among the online Egyptian community, has shown Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi swapping his suit for a cap and becoming “Super Morsi.”

In a spoof of a “Super Morsi” video game, we see a cut-out head of the president bopping up and down, attempting to hit his apparent enemies – members of the Egyptian opposition.

The game’s “Mushroom Kingdom” includes opposition include cut-out heads of the National Salvation Front’s Amr Moussa and Hamdeen Sabahy, also former presidential candidates running in the election with Morsi last year.

Before the video ends, we see “Super Morsi” encountering a collision of a different kind with Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide Mohammed Badie.

“Super Morsi” appears to push Badie above his head, with a little nudge, rather than crushing him below – like he had done with the opposition figureheads.

The video ends with an alternative to the words “Game Over.” Instead “Thawra Over” appears on a black screen, with the word “Thawra” meaning revolution in Arabic – an indication that “Super Morsi’s” moves may have done more harm to the uprising than good.
