Just a while ago, Google celebrated the occasion of Mario Day on March 10, by updating Google maps in such a way that it allowed users to navigate around the Nintendo mascot. However, this time the popular character got a new look after a person edited the caricature on Twitter and the results will give you nightmares. Quite interestingly, the character, who is usually seen wearing a red cap, blue dungarees, white gloves and sporting a bushy moustache, now neither has a moustache nor eyebrows.

While the original image was edited and shared by a Twitter account by the name @yourfavisbald2, it went viral after another person whose Twitter handle is @november17 shared the image with the caption “Shaved Mario”. The tweet had received over 54,000 retweets and over one lakh likes, at the time of writing. Wondering what the clean-shaven Mario looks like? Check it out here:
