Finally, an Answer to “What’s the Deal With Mario’s Nipples?”

And that’s a headline I never thought I’d write.

The good news is that Koizumi found everyone’s reaction funny instead of insulting—and if you watch this whole clip, you’ll also be treated to some insider information on Mario and Toad. Really. It’s actually a bit mind-boggling.
