Crazy bootleg version of Street Fighter makes Mario playable

Titled Mari Street Fighter IV Turbo, it's one of the weirdest — and buggiest — bootlegs of Street Fighter 2 you may ever see. Pound That Cooler got their hands on the title and did a quick play through session with commentary, which contains NSFW language.

The character select screen offers an impressive 56 character roster with some incredibly badly drawn select portraits, many of which are repeated with some minor variations. The real kicker here is Mario is a playable character, and I'm personally at a loss for words to describe just how mangled his sprite looks as they try to make his various animations fit a fighting game.

Check the clip out below and see for yourself.
