Talk about your blatant rip-offs! This work van picture was submitted to Go Nintendo and we're shocked, to tell the truth. We've seen our fair share of lookalikes, but this one is just so lazy. At least the other folks who try to profit from Nintendo's mascot put a little work
into making their version look a little

Haha. Last Friday, I was looking at someone's car that had Snoopy (y'know, the dog) painted on the side. Like, an actual stencil of Snoopy. I was thinking "Wow... blatant copyright infringement." I wish I had my camera. Now, two days later, I see this.

Isn't that just art? I mean...As long as it wasn't a company car or something, right?

Well I'm not saying they should sue the guy or anything. I just thought the big Snoopy on the side was a little odd. Especially because they had flames painted on the front of the car. It was just interesting to me.

Whilst we're on the subject, Mega Man X has also been reduced to washing cars. :)

Wow, if that's real, not only is that picture a ripoff, but so is the name!
They need to have other businesses, Heat Man, Ice Man, and Dust Man's HVAC

I know there's a repair shop up in Syracuse that uses the old Mario with the carpenter tools from the help line.

I know that somewhere in metro Atlanta there was once a plumbing company that had Mario as their mascot. I didn't think much of it when I saw it except "AWESOME! MARIO!", cuz I was about 8 years old back then. Now that I think about it, they should probably have gotten sued pantsless.

That was actually a company car, and the owner actually is an italian plummer
