YouTuber Super Louis 64 – Controller Bender is perhaps best known for finding new and wonderful ways to play classic video games, and one of their latest videos is no exception. As spotted by Kotaku, one of the content creator’s most-recent uploads shows them attempting to get fit – by playing Nintendo’s Super Mario 64 using a trampoline.
The hilarious (and impressive!) video sees the creator jump every single time Mario needs to jump in the game, making for a pretty exceptional workout.
The impressive technical leap (geddit?) is achieved with a Kinect mod, which also marks the player movements to control the direction Mario is facing, as well as his fists. A Joy-Con controller is used simultaneously to propel the character forward.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen content like this from the YouTuber. You might remember them completing Dark Souls using only a Ring Fit, or the time they beat Dark Souls 3 using a Guitar Hero controller. If you haven’t, check out the channel in all its glory on YouTube!
I am a huge fan of people using different peripherals in gaming. Last year, YouTuber and Twitch Partner SarahKey absolutely smashed through Kingdom Hearts 3 using only a dance pad, and it looks like a brilliant way to breathe some new life into the game.
In the video description SarahKey writes: “This took a long time to edit, but it still probably has some mistakes. I hope you enjoy, regardless! I had a lot of fun playing Kingdom Hearts with a dance pad.”
Sharing her achievement to Twitter, SarahKey joked: “I actually cannot believe I beat this brat with a dance pad first try.” Check it out in the video below.
