Nintendo’s Mario had a makeover and social media is shook

One of your favorite iconic video game characters has undergone a makeover! Who could it be?

Now, minus his mustache, Nintendo guy Mario has sparked more than 145,000 retweets and 156,000 likes as of Monday afternoon. In the photo, Mario lacks his signature mustache, as well as his eyebrows and dark hair.

One Twitter user tried to correct the issue by doing some Photoshopping of his own — and sharing several different looks including a goatee, soul patch, and full beard.
