Parody shows equal love in the Mushroom Kingdom

Nintendo delivered a rare mea culpa for excluding same-sex relationships from Tomodachi Life earlier this month, and pledged to be more inclusive in the future.

Although the promise was made specifically for future installments of Tomodachi Life (which may or may not be made, and may or may not be localized outside of Japan), HBO news comedy show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver imagined what it would mean if the promise extended a bit further into Nintendo's canon.

Turns out Mario and Peach were beards for one another the whole time.

We're very happy for the couples - if only Nintendo had let them come out of the warp pipe sooner.
