Obscure Twitter feed posts epic Vine of Mario Bros recreated via foodstuffs

Twitter user @7livers posted something intriguing a few days ago; especially interesting, perhaps, to fans of classic gaming -- or of fresh vegetable.s

Recalling the iconic imagery of the 8-bit Nintendo video game Super Mario Bros, @7livers posted a Vine video clip that recreates a portion of the first level of Mario's original adventure. However, while the composition is artistic, it does not consist of any ordinary digital or photographic reproduction, no: The stop-motion animation is done nearly entirely with items of food.

Miniature marshmallows, Cheez-It crackers, a cucumber, and other edible eateries all make an appearance, along with a penny doing substitute work as one of the legendary plumber's gold coins. While the post is somewhat simple, its originality is refreshing, with a delightful callback to a classic gaming title. Executing the scene via snacks is just the icing on the cake; or, perhaps rather, the cheese on the cracker.

The artist asked if anyone would like to see further examples. Despite boasting less than a dozen followers at press time, some affirmative requests had already been filed in reply. Hopefully, more such projects will emerge in the future.
