Ever since we spent afternoons flipping through Nintendo Power and weekends watching and re-watching The Wizard, we’ve imagined that working at Nintendo must be awesome. This statue, awarded to a Nintendo employee after 20 years of work at the company, just proves it in spades.
I mean, who wouldn’t want a bronze Mario statue hanging out on the mantle? Super cool.
The man, Jerry Danson, has worked at Nintendo since 1991, making this is 20th year. The plaque reads “Congratulations on 20 great years, from all of your friends at Nintendo.”
