Yoshi may be the faithful sidekick to Mario but it would be fair to say that he has become every bit as iconic as his Italian plumber friend, and has even starred in his very own games. In order to commemorate Yoshi’s contribution to gaming, one fan has used thousands of dominoes to pay tribute to everyone’s favorite dinosaur.
YouTuber TheDominoKing goes to great efforts in order to create pop-culture icons by using different colored dominoes. Past videos have included the likes of Rick and Morty, Sonic the Hedgehog, Minecraft, and Deadpool. Now Yoshi has been added to the roster with the help of over 16,000 dominoes.
A lot of time and effort went into this projects, as the video description reads:
“For the past year I’ve been receiving comments to make Yoshi in dominoes, I finally made a video dedicated to one of the most beloved characters in the Mario series. Overall this video was put together in 5 days (around 4-5 hours of work each day) with a total of 16,636 dominoes used in the video.”
This is a seriously impressive way to celebrate such an iconic character and, with any luck, the good folks over at Nintendo will see the video. We’re just glad the dominoes didn’t stop falling half way through the video!
