Sure, stop-motion videos on YouTube are a dime a dozen, but this Super Mario Bros. Paper Stop Motion painstakingly recreates the first level of the iconic Nintendo Entertainment System game to devastatingly accurate results, so I can't harp on it.

The Super Mario Bros Paper Stop Motion was made by Jeremiah Warren and it perfectly emulates all the familiar Mario-isms such as eating a mushroom to grow in physical size, grabbing a flower in order to shoot fireballs out of your palms, and jumping on silly goombas who stand in your way to saving Princess Toadstool.

Implications - Consumers are gravitating toward more traditional forms of animation because of the media's oversaturation of computer-generated animations. Consumers can also better empathize with stop-motion videos because they're recognizably made by humans without the aid of digital technologies. Corporations may consider employing stop-motion animation for advertising campaigns in order to garner consumer attention.
