Russian duo Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov recently took home the silver medal at the World Figure Skating Championships by performing this Super Mario Bros.-inspired routine.

It's odd that Maxim is wearing Wario's yellow shirt instead of Luigi's green outfit, but I like it because I can attribute the quirk to this being a sketchy Russian clone of the famous platformer.

The performance might've won gold if the competition took place in Japan (Mario's hometown of course) as originally planned, but the event was moved to Russia following March's earthquake and tsunami.
