"Super Morsi"- Super Mario Spoof of Egypt's President - Video

Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi stars in a spoof of Super Mario as "Super Morsi."

The spoof game’s “Mushroom Kingdom” includes opposition include cut-out heads of the National Salvation Front’s Amr Moussa and Hamdeen Sabahy, also former presidential candidates running in the election with Mursi last year.
Before the video ends, we see “Super Mursi” encountering a collision of a different kind with Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide Mohammed Badie.

“Super Mursi” appears to push Badie above his head, with a little nudge, rather than crushing him below – like he had done with the opposition figureheads.
The video ends with an alternative to the words “Game Over.” Instead “Thawra Over” appears on a black screen, with the word “Thawra” meaning revolution in Arabic – an indication that “Super Mursi’s” moves may have done more harm to the uprising than good.
