Chris Pratt and Charlie Day just might have the perfect response to all the critics of their upcoming film “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.”
Pratt, 43, posted a video on Instagram on Saturday teasing what his character, Mario, will sound like in the highly anticipated animated film. The “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor jokingly wrote that the video is “Top secret exclusive” in capital letters.
Hear the real, raw, unfiltered, and 100% authentic voices of Mario and Luigi like never before,” Pratt continued in his post’s caption.
However, his now-viral video, which has garnered over 2.7 million views and 168,000 likes, is far from “authentic.” The “Parks and Recreation” star can be heard saying “I’m giving you all a sneak peek at Mario’s voice for the first time: It’s me, Mario,” in a gruff voice.
Day, 47, was also featured in the video and trolled viewers interested in hearing his character Luigi’s voice.
Instead of using a gruff voice like Pratt, the “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” star chose to silently mouth several sentences.
Countless netizens criticized “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” following the release of the film’s official trailer in November 2022.
Many of them negatively commented on how Mario, whose ethnicity has been questioned for years, sounds in the trailer.
Pratt’s latest Instagram video could be seen as a response to the backlash, which several Instagram users quickly picked up in his post’s comment section.
I love that he’s just trolling people at this point,” one user wrote.
“Bahahaha way to hit them voice haters, Chris!” another user commented.
“Sounds like Starlord imitating Thor. I’m here for it!” another user said.
Meanwhile, a Twitter user poked fun at the Marvel star’s video by posting Mario’s iconic line “It’s me, Mario!” accompanied by a picture of Big Boss from Hideo Kojima’s “Metal Gear Solid” franchise.
