Mario Paint Caricature Video, 1993 CES

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Chicago, 1993, Nintendo had artists at their booth showing off the new SNES game Mario Paint by doing live caricatures of people. This is the caricature video of my brother (Tony, on the right), and me (Tyler, on the left).

you know you've got talent if you can use a ghetto painting app ON THE SNES to make create a likeness in an appropriately Nintendo cartoony style

Behold! The amazing computional power of the SNES. Flood fill? Please wait, processing...

Mario Paint was awesome though, I loved the fly-swatter game.

Where did you get this video btw? Did they give you a copy?

You had to wait in line for like an hour to get your caricature done, but then you got to keep a VHS tape of it.
