As Screen Rant readers may be aware, this Friday, Quentin Tarantino’s highly anticipated film Inglourious Basterds bludgeons its way onto theater screens in what is sure to be a bloody, violent (if not dialog heavy) film. What you may NOT be aware of, is that before Tarantino came along, Mario did it first, using his plunger of Justice to crack some Koopa shell!

The guys over at Gamer Vision have put together a humorous Inglourious Basterds parody video involving Toadsworth as Brad Pitt (funny mustache and all), Mario, Luigi, Toadstool and the Princess playing the parts of the Basterds and Koopa and his henchman playing the parts of the Nazis. Well done guys! Check out the video below.

My favorite scene was Mario running through the tunnel shooting fireballs out of his hands – good stuff! Actually, the video makes me wonder if a hardcore action film of Super Mario Bros. isn’t well over due? Make it a little dark, a little brooding and for goodness sake, leave Dennis Hopper out of it!

Are you looking forward to watching Inglourious Basterds and what do you think about a more up-to-date darker version of Super Mario Bros.?

Inglourious Basterds opens August 21st, 2009.
