I take for granted the fact that everyone and their uncle knows who the Super Mario Bros. are, but this wasn't always the case as this nostalgic story on the Nintendo Entertainment System proves. This video even shows us Nintendo's old call center, where grown men and women have to explain to children how to get 99 1ups in Super Mario Bros. over the phone. Bill O'Reilly even introduces the whole thing! Look at how mellow he was! Man, the 80s were great.
