Today I found out Toad is flipping us all off in Super Mario Bros. As if the cloud/bushes thing wasn’t enough, now this! It’s all been a lie!
I’ve seen this re-posted so many times. How do so many people have a hard time seeing that those are knuckles? He’s giving a thumbs down. The sprite doesn’t even make sense, otherwise. What is the protrusion at the bottom, if not his thumb?
This makes all the more sense when you take the content of the screen into context.
@Andy: It’s all a matter of perspective. I’ve seen some people that think it looks like he’s giving a thumbs up; you’re the first I’ve seen suggest it’s the thumbs down. I’ve always thought it looked like he’s flipping people off though.
BTW, love the “enhance” to Shigeru Miyamoto.
Toad is flipping you off personally.
It’s 8bit graphics…you can make anything out of that, lol… what do you expect?
Thank you. Really interesting article.
Well, That looks like my Middle Finger, Its Actully(or however people spell it) my thumb.
@Andy He was flipping you off, his fist is a 2X3 pixel, middle finger is 1 pixel the 2 pixels beside and under each fist is his shoulder (he is wearing a vest), and if you don’t believe me I am standing to his left, and programmers like jokes, especially when they take ages to under stand. Examples “Excel 95 Hall of Tortured Souls” easter egg, “GTA Hot Coffee minigame”
