Super Mario Bros has become an unparalleled success. It is the animated film with the best premiere in history, and thanks to its multiple easter eggs, it continues to conquer more and more audiences. While we wait for it to land on Netflix, the movie has conquered another great achievement: the musical.
At a very specific moment in the film, the character of Bowser, played by Jack Black – who just appeared in The Mandalorian – performs the song Peaches, peaches, peaches, peaches, in which the evil monster shows his feelings for the princess.
As an ironic ballad, the song was hardly intended to be just another humorous moment in the film. However, its great lyrics, melody and Jack Black’s performance have had everyone with Peaches, peaches, peaches in their heads ever since. And it is a hit that can go far, and for this they have celebrated with a hilarious video clip:
An unforgettable song
About Peaches, peaches, peaches, peaches the film’s co-director Aaron Horvath has spoken, making it more than clear that Jack Black is to blame for this big hit:
“While we were trying to capture Bowser’s feelings for Peach, it seemed more fun, funny and sweet if we asked him to sing a song about it. Jack Black is an amazing singer and musician, so we spent a night writing the song and sent the demo to Jack. A couple of days later, Jack sent us a finished track. He had added his own touch to it and his pianist added a track of original music. We were impressed.
“Peach, understand, I will love you to the end. Neither Mario, nor Luigi, nor Donkey Kong. Not even a thousand troops of Koopas could keep me away from you” narrates the song, and no doubt it does it in an emotional way and straight to the heart… or to laughter. Either way, it has been such a phenomenon that the production company has submitted it as a pre-candidate for next year’s Oscars. Hopefully we’ll see Bowser/Jack Black singing it at the ceremony.
