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.

Normally I don't look at this section of the forum, but I think this is pretty funny.

I've been on some crazy teams and some guys have dressed up as stuff on road trips (we had a gorilla run through a hotel once and raid the continental breakfast of bananas), but this tops all of them. He actually looks like something out of Disney World--it's like a Mickey Mouse costume but it's Luigi.

Why escort this guy out? My crazy friends never got into trouble on our trips back in the day. Sr. Year tournament was the craziest for us--some guys brought like three costumes. I was always the sane one, who didn't dress up and just check out the ladies on trips.

But we all know that ladies dig the costumes.

This is hilarious!!  It's always great to see things happening to guys in costumes (especially Luigi).  This kind of thing seems to happen to Mickey Mouse a lot...

Perhaps he never got around to reading this until now.
Remember that your first Goomba boldly you walk? When Mario touched that mushroom being brought up more largely remember that you are surprised? Miscalculate your jump that pit remember that it falls?
