Toronto street artist Aiden Glynn played a hilarious prank in a well-known Toronto supermarket this week when he placed a package of Mario-inspired mushrooms amid the vegetables section.

This inventive prank by the video game-loving street artist is sure to have elicited some chuckles from shoppers who came across the quirky addition to their weekly shop. As most know about the iconic Nintendo game, if Mario eats one of the mushrooms he doubles in size -- I’m not sure if anyone was brave enough to eat these rogue video game mushrooms.

The artist posted the cheeky prank on his website along with an excited message saying: “Coming soon to a grocery store near you. Take one a day for maximum growth. I wish I could have seen the person who finds them.” Stats for Guerilla Supermarket Art Trending: Older & Buzzing
