The first ever SM64 Blooper to be published by MegaMan765
Machinima was some type of animation genre that used to rule the internet back at around earlier 2000s and these aren’t like hand-drawn animation as you see very often on Modern-day YouTube or even Newgrounds, rather it uses existing video game while making up a story at the same time. For example, using Gmod, a video game, and posing it (with prop and camera) in the way you make a movie. It pretty much an Amautar animation.
One of the most prime examples was Super Mario 64, one of the most iconic Nintendo 64 game that shapes the 3D gaming around the world, featuring your favorite plumber hero, Mario. It was so popular that on September 20, 2006, someone decides to make the Machinima series based on that game and his name was Megaman765. This will mark the beginning of Super Mario 64 Blooper and how it strives throughout the 2000s.
The “M” man
Back then, the tool need for animation wasn’t for everyone to access. If you wanted to animate, you have to pay for it and we talking about loads of money that not everyone has. Plus, you have to get into college to understanding the uses of animation and it mainly huge animation businesses that do that since independent animation wasn’t widespread other then Newgrounds.
So, what can you do with a very limited option? Well, if you got any video game (Let's say you got Project64) and video editor, you can pull off Machinima style video and those were everywhere on YouTube and one of them was Super Mario 64.
There were a lot of Mario Machinist around on YouTube and at the time, those video they made are usually popular with around thousands of views or so (if you were on YouTube back in 2008, that number was big for the creator) and almost every SM64 feature Mario and their Character. What character am I referring to?
No, not Waluigi but rather a Recolor Mario that represents who the YouTuber is. These recolors Mario was everywhere and becoming one of the Mario 64 Blooper trends. So pretty much, a bunch of Mario took over YouTube in the late 2000s. Sadly., I didn’t grow up around this era other than seeing a bunch of Mario YTP shitfest on Youtube.
