Everybody loves Waluigi, the tall and slender evil double for Mario’s lesser brother. What’s not to love? He’s one of the oddest characters in the Mario series, really only appearing in the spinoff multiplayer series like Mario Tennis and Mario Kart, but he’s also one of the most intriguing.
Now some of Hollywood’s most prominent celebrities are showing their support for the purple one by incorporating the character’s iconic mustache and hat into their own chic looks. Here are some of our favorites that prove the Summer of 2016 is shaping up to be the Summer of Waluigi.
Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon wasn’t afraid to show off her new purple hat and mustache combo on the red carpet, revealing a fun and flirty devilish side that invites fans to ask, “Is sexy Waluigi the new regular sexy?”
The talk show sidekick has long been a supporter of Waluigi, dating back to his impassioned plea for the character during his short-lived stint beside Conan O’Brien on The Tonight Show that led many to believe was the sole reason for their subsequent cancellation. Nevertheless, Andy Richter is a proud supporter of Waluigi and is always quick to clarify that just because Waluigi and Wario are thematically connected does not necessarily mean they are brothers like Mario and Luigi.
Nostalgic ‘90s kids were delighted when Netflix revived the classic sitcom Full House, but every person in every demographic was even more delighted – ecstatic, even – when Jodi represented the big upside-down “L” to the Fuller House premiere. Some people have started openly wondering if this Waluigi thing is more than a mere fashion trend. Is Waluigi the new Scientology? Is it possible there is a sinister organization involved in this?
The Soup Nazi
Supporters of the Waluigi cult conspiracy theory point to evidence like this: how could the Soup Nazi realistically be a Waluigi fan? Seinfeld ceased production long before Waluigi made his official debut in Mario Tennis for the Nintendo 64 in 2000, yet reruns of the Soup Nazi episode now feature the character supporting Waluigi. That means these episodes were either doctored by hand or by some kind of dark magic. It’s unsettling. On the other hand, it’s also an improvement, aesthetically.
Why would anyone care that Dennis Miller likes Waluigi? Nobody has cared about Dennis Miller in a long, long time. The comedian-turned-FOX News contributor hasn’t been afraid to spout his eclectic and obscure references in the past, so it’s perhaps no surprise to see him take up the Waluigi cause. But if there is a secret Waluigi club, Dennis Miller’s inclusion begs the question: WHY? What advantage could you hope to gain from Dennis Miller aside from willful obtuseness? It’s a question as beguiling as Waluigi himself.
The millennial choice for president, Bernie Sanders has sent a jolt of electricity to young liberal voters, primarily because of his support for Waluigi. Here’s where things get interesting. Would a Sanders presidency mean a wider acceptance for the niche Nintendo character? Is this theoretical Waluigi secret society comparable perhaps to the Ivy League Skull and Crossbones society that has produced several presidents in the past? It casts a dark shadow across a candidate that has otherwise stayed firmly in the light, but there’s no denying this image of Bernie with the Waluigi hat and mustache. Really makes you think.
Rapper, singer, and actor Ja Rule looks a little embarrassed, but make no mistake: he’s so into Waluigi that he changed his name to Jaruigi, which he refers to as “the evil version of Ja Rule.” Maybe that will mean the next Mario Kart will receive hip hop tracks like the ones he’s produced for the Fast & Furious series. Or maybe Jaruigi is, like us, merely a fan.

I'm a bit of a collector.
I've got props and posters from all my favorite stories, I refuse to buy console games digitally so I can look at my library with pride, and I'm pretty sure I own the special edition of every game Bungie's made since Halo.
So imagine my surprise when I was told we'd be making a Chorus Trilogy Box Set... a steelbook box set.
Spoiler alert, I looked something like this:
To this day, I still can't believe I was lucky enough to work on Red vs. Blue, let alone be able to say I directed an entire trilogy. Having all three movies together in such a cool package is like a dream come true.
Normally we're not able to get away with super abstract cover art, but because this piece was so special, we were given the green light to have a lot of fun with it. I really dig simple, minimalist artwork, and wanted to incorporate that style into the cover art. I pitched the idea of the three towers to the designer and he shot back with a few ideas of his own. The collaborative result is something that I think looks pretty damn cool (especially the subtle green and orange markings on the back... wink wink).
Of course, there's always a bittersweet realization when a collector's edition comes out, "But I already bought these movies when they were first released." Believe me, I know that pain. In case you're worried about missing out on additional content, I can go ahead and let you know that the content on these new discs is identical to the Blu-rays already released (note: there is more BTS content on the Blu-Rays than DVDs). No additional extras, just a limited edition steel case and unique disc art.
Still, to everyone who bought seasons 11, 12, and 13 when they were first released... thank you so, so much. We can't do the things we do without your support, and yes, that especially includes financial support. I'd been told several times that a box set wasn't going to happen, but after seeing the success of all three seasons, someone up top made the call to go for it, and it's thanks to you!
The box set is currently available for preorder on Amazon and will be released JUNE 28th, 2016.
So, if you're a fan that hasn't grabbed these movies yet (or if you only have them on DVD), by all means, pick up a copy! If you already own the movies but want this badass new bundle... well, you can always gift your old ones to someone else, right? You're such a good friend.
Thank you again for everything. I hope you guys dig this special release and I'll be seeing you soon for RvB14!

It’s time for our weekly look at the best Rooster Teeth fan art from our community, curated by the fine folks at BIGBITE!
This week’s featured artist is Vickie Snow, AKA @staticXshadows, for her awesome Borderlands-style illustration of Qrow from RWBY.
Vickie lives in London and is currently studying for her A-Levels. She loves the character design in RWBY and the art style in Borderlands, so she decided to try and combine the two. This piece was drawn in Photoshop and took approximately six hours to create.
