This is the year of Luigi and Nintendo is highlighting it in a special way with their recent video, a tribute to Luigi for his parkour skills. He can jump higher and farther than his brother Mario, which is a core tennant of parkour as a sport. This “mockumentary” about the rise of Luigi and his contributions to parkour is the type of advertising that Nintendo should be doing!

Let us know what you think of the video below.

        • LoZ4life98

          Ha! I have seen all those parkour people they brought in to talk about the “L Man” on Ninja
          Warrior and Jump City Seattle. I guess those people can make money outside of that.

          • Shota

    • Deadpool U

      How is this old?

      • david jarman

        It’s been circulating the Internet and was featured on yesterday. So its sort of oldish.

        • Deadpool U

          But it was posted like 2 hours ago.

          • david jarman

            Not on it wasn’t. They broadcast it almost a day earlier.
            There is a lot of wii u news that we are getting late on here or not getting at all.
            For example crytek’s new next gen engine supports Wii u.
            Or the crap load of indie games we are getting.

    • Lusunup

      It was just uploaded today.

  • BIG Franky


  • Clel

    No but all joking aside, that parkour was AMAZING

    • Vialtoclef

      It was. Especially when they rolled off of the walls–that seems both painful and difficult.

  • Merrfn

    They need to re-take this and put him in the Luigi mascot costumes. Big bobble head luigi doing parkour? Seems like a win!

  • Justin Carlson

    This makes me want Super Luigi U… and I didn’t want it before.

    Score one for Nintendo.

  • Lusunup

    Luigi parkour= Super Legend!
    This video shows why luigi deserves his year!

  • Shota

    please nintendo, make a game where luigi does this in mushroom kingdom.

  • Thomas Fitzgibbon

    Luigi’s Edge.

  • Schultz38

    “He leads by example. It’s that….walking the walk, without talking the talk.”

    HA. Made me lol..

  • What can I say about this, I can think of one thing only: Best promotional video ever.

  • Cubester_64

    Sonic has nothing on Luigi!

  • RΓ©mi

    HaHa thats was me that send the link to the video to the moderator πŸ˜›
    Really fun video and it promote a game in a way that i hasn’t thought

  • Vialtoclef

    How did they get all these people together to do this? I mean, it had everyone from Jesse LaFlair to Josh Jepson!

    • David Porter

      I’m going to take a wild stab at it and guess “money”. Money is how they got them together.

  • NintendoNoob

    I’m doin this shit someday :3
    But I wont be as good as Luigi

  • Mario

    That was legendary!

  • Mochlum

    This is just plain genius. I especially love the subtle Luigi U references and the cameos of famous gamers.

  • val berger

    Thus Nintendo shall continue walking this path of marketing.

  • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

    Did they really include Josh Jepson oO

    Guess Nintendo’s on good terms with Let’s Players again.

  • IBlock

    Nice (SCWING!)

  • Christopher Acuna

    Corn Dogs are the best.

  • Archiq09
