Mega64 is just wonderful videogame/guerrilla theater goodness. Most of their sketches will make no sense without a relatively deep videogame knowledge (for example if you are unfamiliar with Ico, this video will make no sense). The Tetris one will make sense to most people at this point (and is somehow oddly touching).
I've finally gotten around to playing Dead Rising so the following video is very funny to me.
But the reason I bring them up today is their special GDC (Game Developers Conference) Super Mario Bros. video.
While the chance that Mario is familiar to you is pretty high, your recognition of the Japanese fellow* is slight... and in there lies all of the humor. That and Link.
