PAUSE: Super Mario Bros. fits perfectly in a fish tank.


Level 1-1 from Super Mario Bros. is one of the most instantly recognizable places in the history of imaginary worlds. It’s opening layout, with the one mushroom-laden question mark and that first angry-faced Goomba is an instinctual memory for millions of people around the world. One fan loved the setting so much he turned it into a fish tank environment to circumscribe the lifetime of his otherwise oblivious fish. It is always pets that end up living in the landscape of our dreams.
