There’s no doubt the Super Mario Bros. Movie is going to be a big hit this year. We already talked about the legacy of Mario and how the Italian plumber has been entertaining us for decades. Illumination and Nintendo keep teasing us with posters, teaser trailers, etc. from the Super Mario Movie.

One of the latest teasers is the Super Mario Bros. Plumbing Commercial played at the Super Bowl. The commercial is filled with nostalgia and fun easter eggs. Here’s a list of all the easter eggs we found.

The Plumber Rap

At the end of the ’80s the Mario brothers had their tv-show ‘Super Mario Brothers Super Show’. The opening sequence of this show is called the ‘Plumber Rap’. A part of these lyrics is used in the new commercial for the Super Bowl. You can check the old-school rap in the video below.

1889th Street

On the map in the video, we can see 1889th street. It’s an easter egg referring to the Japanese multinational video game company. Nintendo was founded in 1889 as Nintendo Karuta and originally produced handmade Hanafuda playing cards.

The Super Mario Bros. Plumbing dispatch

The video provides us with a number we can text or call. By calling ‘929-55-Mario’ or ‘929-556-2745’ you’ll hear a voice message from Luigi. You can hear the full voice message in the video below.

You can also text the number, you’ll receive a text with a link to subscribe to what looks like email marketing for the movie. You’ll also receive some other texts about the plumbing company if you further reply to the received texts.
