Aussie TV accidentally interviews voice of Mario

Even though he voices one of the most recognisable characters in the world, Charles Martinet is a pretty unassuming fella in person. In fact, to an Australian tv station, the silver-haired Californian was just another one of thousands affected by an incident at Melbourne Airport.

Martinet was in Australia recently for a number of gaming events (including EB Games Expo and Supernova) and was one of many passengers “inconvenienced” when a suspicious package was discovered in the terminal.

The video – spotted by Vooks – hints that nobody knew who he was while he waited for his flight. I offer another theory: The news crew are massive gamers and wanted to slip this in as a bit of an inside joke.

What do you think?
