Camiseteria’s Darth Mario Rockstar

Darth Mario Rockstar by Zakeu Silva is from the school of mashups that just throws two popular things together without needing a thematic link. And indeed, these two characters wouldn’t be more different- one a hero, one a villain; one clothed in dark armor, the other in red overalls; the interstellar strategist and the ordinary plumber. But what makes the weird mix work is the sheer zany enthusiasm of it! By showing this guy wailing on his electric guitar, the artist shows a commitment to awesomeness ahead of common sense. It’s fun to be silly, and seeing Darth’s usually foreboding helmet painted fire engine red to match Mario’s cap is definitely so goofy it’ll make a lot of people smile. While I wish there were a few more details pushing the Mario/Darth concept (for instance, decals on the guitar or a design on the player’s wristband), it’s still pretty amusing as-is.
