Watch Super Mario 64 Descend Into Glitch Madness

This highlight reel of a corrupted Super Mario 64 cartridge is somehow both grotesque and nostalgia-inducing at the same time: watch in horror as Mario’s melting, contorted face welcomes you to the game, as our hero falls through apparently solid floors, climbs invisible ladders, and explodes into streams of of stretched-out pixels. I could do without the narrator’s commentary, but that’s just me.

Plenty of other bizarre corrupted game videos are available on Vinesauce, the site that uploaded this one. Here are a few others.
