Multiple hispanic sites claiming Miyamoto said Mario & Luigi are/were a couple.....
 
What is going on here?

A friend told me on facebook that the bros just had their "coming out" and I told him, "come on, thats bullshit, have you got any links to articles or something??" and ... woah..

now... I know this is BS... but how could these sites fall for it??? don't they care for their journalistic intergrity? and were did this rumor come from?

I've never seen anything like it.

slit 07-25-2013 01:01 AM

Uhhhh....they're brothers.

granabanana 07-25-2013 01:01 AM

They are brothers!

Aquamarine 07-25-2013 01:02 AM

But that would be incest...

NZNova 07-25-2013 01:02 AM

It's just a bromance.

Andrefpvs 07-25-2013 01:02 AM

[QUOTE=NZNova;72648966]It's just a bromance.[/QUOTE]

In this case, it would be quite literally.

EDIT: Read the articles, seems like a bunch of made up bullshit.

They're just hanging out drinking some Natty Ice.

CrazyDude 07-25-2013 01:03 AM

Or in other words, multiple sites reporting on same mistranslation.

BGBW 07-25-2013 01:03 AM

I think you'll find they are actually twins.

I mean you say to one of them if they'd like an ice cream cone and I'd bet you anything both of them will say "yes".

Zomba13 07-25-2013 01:04 AM

Maybe something to do with the new Mario and Luigi? Does dream team translate to or imply anything in Spanish?

Kater 07-25-2013 01:04 AM

Don't tell the tumblr guys. I fear what they could come up with. :(

Smithy C 07-25-2013 01:04 AM

If so, then Super Mario Brothers was an odd choice for a game's title.

zroid 07-25-2013 01:04 AM

It was all a cover, so their living arrangements wouldn't raise suspicion.

Of course they're a couple.

A couple of guys!

what a coincidence, i was just thinking this would be a funny 'what if' the other day.

Rewrite 07-25-2013 01:06 AM

No mames.

RoboPlato 07-25-2013 01:06 AM

This has to be some kind of mistranslation.

Jintor 07-25-2013 01:07 AM

If it's anything like English-speaking gaming meida one halfway reputable site got it, probably out of a mistranslation, and then it just spred virally from there

Ishida 07-25-2013 01:07 AM

Just a heads up: "sdpnoticias" site is a parody/joke site. This is where the "news" originated from.

The other sites are just linking to the original.

watershed 07-25-2013 01:07 AM

This will be fun.

It's clear it's BS from the moment you read the headline but why post articles like that? what's the point?

DPJ 07-25-2013 01:09 AM

With those mustaches, who didn't see it coming?

LordBaztion 07-25-2013 01:10 AM

jaja, this can't be serious, not even a misleading translation

Well, sdpnoticias is a parody/joke site with fake news. They obviously did it for teh lulz. The other sites believed it was real news and just copied it.

The other sites are legit, and they are indeed being trolled hard.
