Nintendo Just Put The Mario Movie’s Post Credits Surprise In A TV Ad

The Super Mario Bros. Movie has surpassed $1 billion at the box office, entering the top ten highest-grossing animated films ever in the process. Nintendo naturally wants the movie to make as much as possible, hence the ads for it still being rolled out. However, it doesn’t seem to be all that bothered about spoilers anymore as a recent TV spot for the Mario movie includes a shot of the surprise scene that plays right at the end of the credits.

If you’re one of the few who still hasn’t seen the Mario movie and you don’t want its post-credits scene spoiled, you may want to stop reading here. Shared by Aiden129 on Twitter, a recent spot combines a number of clips from the film and crams them into a very short montage. One of those short clips is the look Mario fans got at a Yoshi egg hidden in the sewer, cracking right before it fades to black and the dinosaur’s iconic call can be heard.

Even though it was a short scene, naturally the entire thing wasn’t crammed into the new ad. That the egg was shown at all is a little odd, though. Aside from a herd of them running off in the distance on one occasion, I don’t believe Yoshis were a part of the movie at all outside of the post-credits scene. Those who haven’t seen the movie yet being convinced to go by the ad below will likely be sitting there for the full 90 minutes wondering when Yoshi is going to show up.

If they stick around until the credits have rolled, which is easier said than done if you have kids with you, they will then get to see the surprise that was ruined for them by the ad. It’s a strange decision on Nintendo and Illumination’s part to include it, and as pointed out in the replies to the post, it isn’t the only spoiler in the short spot. There are so many scenes from the movie crammed into 14 seconds, it’s almost impressive.

The counterargument to this is the one thing that some reviewers thought might work against the Mario movie before it raked in $1 billion at the box office. That it doesn’t really have a story to spoil. Just like most Mario games, the big-screen adaptation is light on plot. The thought process behind its new TV spot might simply be to cram as much nostalgia into 14 seconds as possible to get anyone still on the fence to come and watch it, and yes, that does include the reveal that Yoshi is teased, even if that was saved until after the credits.
