At a Wii launch in Japan, someone showed up dressed in a fairly nice Luigi costume.  He helped launch the system and sell the first game.

The problem was that he wasn't an NCL employee... just a random guy in a nice Luigi suit.

Fifth photo (not exact translation): "Authorized people lead Luigi the heck out of there."

I wonder what the poor guy was charged with.

Improper use of a preposition.

Why is Luigi doing the...... "W" sign? And why did they use Luigi?

"W" for Wii?

It was probably a crazed Luigi fan, or else the Mario got busted on the way in.

I salute this guy. He's pretty brave, doing something like this and getting booted out of the store because of it.

I so want that Luigi costume.

Not knowing the translations, the three Luigi pictures appear to tell an interesting comic-strip-like story.

He was doing the "WII" sign.  Look at his other hand.

I thought it was supposed to be 2 back-to-back victory signs.
