On Sunday evening, Lower Haight local Dan Jackson was walking down the 400 block of Haight towards Fillmore when something caught his eye on the side of the CVS building, above Love Haight Computers. 

When he crossed the street, he saw that it was a two-story-tall projection of Super Mario Bros.—with a game in progress. 

"I couldn't see anyone playing or controlling it, so I'm not even sure who set it up," he said.

Even though the projection had no sound, it was "pretty awesome," Jackson said. 

It's not clear who was behind the projection, so if you know the clever gamer(s) taking Marioland by storm last night, drop us a line or shoot us a text at (415) 200-3233. 

Those looking to play Nintendo in an unconventional location should also keep an eye out for the MobileGameStop, a traveling vehicular video game effort run by a husband-and-wife team. They can often be found in the Haight, letting passerby play Super Mario Bros. and other classic games out of the trunk of their SUV.
