If you live in the U.S., you probably know that there's a presidential election coming up this November. As it stands, you currently have a few front-runner options: John McCain, Barack Obama, or ... Mario and Luigi?
Yes, the joke's been done before (especially because of the nine thousand Mario Party
games out there), but now it's on a t-shirt. Yet, that's not where Nintendo stops interfering in politics.
Supporters of presidential candidate (and popular Mii
), Barack Obama, have made a ton of 1up themed paraphernalia endorsing the candidate. The "O" in "Obama" was replaced with the green power-up, and the slogan reads, "Obama: 1up for America." Check past the break (or just click here
) to see the design made by the Leftique.
Now all we need is some game gear for McCain, and Nintendo will have completely taken over this election.
