Man In Tanooki Suit, Giant Bullet Spotted In Manhattan

Nintendo's promotional stunt for Super Mario 3D Land turned part of Times Square into a version of the Mushroom Kingdom. That brought out paid and unpaid people decked out in Mario gear. Plus a massive Bullet Bill.

We already ran video of this amazing PR stunt, but the shots photographer Rob Boudon snapped at the event were too good not to share. Here are four of them. Check his Flickr photo stream for the rest. Good work, Rob!

    God no - looks worse than the Mario Bros. movie!

    Woulda been better if the tanooki suit was made out of real fur, really give peta something to talk about.
