The new ‘Paper Mario’ game features a very cool PUP Easter egg

The Nintendo title features multiple nods to the band's 2019 record Morbid Stuff

Video game developers, they’re just like us: Big fans of Toronto-based punk outfit PUP.

Nintendo’s new Paper Mario game, Paper Mario: The Origami King was released this month and the boys in PUP, spotted some references to their 2019 record Morbid Stuff. Drummer Zack Mykula shared some screenshots to Twitter.

PUP’s 2016 video for “DVP” features a wealth of references to classic video games. It appears the love between PUP and the house that Mario built is mutual.
