Identify this chap, and the reason why this question is being asked today.

Clue:  The character, not the legend.



Cracked by Paatala Veera, Kaustubh, Nihar and raklodrama.

Kaustubh gets QM’s respect for identifying Ron Jeremy.


Quoting Kaustubh
“That’s Mario Segale (who’s name was given to the character Mario). On September 13th, Super Mario Bros. turns 25. And that’s a creepy looking picture of Ron Jeremy. ”

  3. The Truth says:

    There is no concrete evidence that proves that Mario was named after Mario Segale. Neither Nintendo, nor Mario Segale has ever confirmed this rumor. The rumor was started in a book called “Game Over: How Nintendo Zapped an American Industry, Captured Your Dollars, and Enslaved Your Children” and even though the author interviewed Shigeru Miyamoto, he spelled his name wrong throughout the entire thing book, and never asked him about the origin of Mario’s name. So, that’s hardly fact. Odds are, it’s a co-incidence. Personally, I don’t believe that this real estate mogul personally showed up to the NOA offices demanding money. You have people to do that for you when you’re the boss.
