Being one of the most popular video game characters of all time, Mario has been resurrected in these few impressions as the bold hero we know so well. As can be seen, few of the images are not necessarily of cans but are large Mario Soda Displays (and Donkey Kong) which are too good to ignore. Furthermore, the famous Piranha plant was also canned.
