Parkour athletes Christian Russel and Ronnie Shalvis dressed up as Mario and Luigi to recreate the iconic video game.

Parkour athletes Christian Russell and Ronnie Shalvis dressed up as Mario and Luigi and performed parkour stunts all around Salt Lake City to create a modern version of the classic video game Super Mario Bros.

The guys were filmed freerunning, doing flips,  jumping off structures, and scaling walls. Digital graphics were used to add game elements and characters into the video. A modern version of the game's theme song was used as the background music to make the video complete.

In the video, Mario and Luigi can be seen collecting coins, jumping on mushrooms, dodging fireballs, and even throwing their own fireballs at enemies.
