This Mario Maker level perfectly parodies video game melodrama

Super Mario Maker hasn't been out in the wild for even a week and already its players are crafting some truly wonderful levels. Some are going as far as transplanting Mario into a dramatic narrative game along the lines of Heavy Rain. Take a look for yourself, and be sure to have the sound on - the director's commentary really helps sell the gravitas of Mario's actions.

I am overcome by emotions. Truly, this is the Citizen Kane of video games. The pinnacle of human drama. Mario, today you have become the most mature game of them all.
