The voice of Mario, Charles Martinet, was one of the many passengers inconvenienced by a suspicious package at Melbourne's airport, and he just happens to be one of the people Channel 7 interviewed.
Channel 7 reporters may have had no idea who Charles Martinet was - if you're not much of a gamer you probably won't recognise the guy that provides the most iconic voice in the gaming industry. On the other hand, maybe they did know and that's why they decided to talk to him and not one of the other thousands of people stranded at the airport.
Either way, it caught our attention, and thought it was pretty cool to see Charles on 7 News!
Thanks Vooks for putting the video online!
