    Obnoxious teen sensation Justin Bieber - or, at least, his people - wanted to use the iconic Super Mario Bros. theme in his upcoming movie. Curiously, Nintendo said "nothankyou.jpg".

    Love him or hate him, this kid is one of the biggest things in entertainment right now, and "Never Say Never", his movie/promotion vehicle due to be released later this year will undoubtedly be one of the biggest flicks of the year. At least in terms of money made.

    Why, then, is the "film's" director John Chu complaining "aw C'mon Nintendo! Y won't u let us use the Mario theme for 15 secs in the @Justinbieber movie...talk about free advertising passed up. Oops."

    You could argue that, having let the Scott Pilgrim movie use the Zelda theme last year, they're being picky with which properties are associated with their brand. Or that Chu is being punished for his atrocious use of "text speak".

    Then again, this is Nintendo we're talking about. The same Nintendo who thought this was a good idea.[/p]

    Interesting they let Scott Pilgrim use the LTTP theme as the first thing in the movie but not the Mario theme for Bieber.

    They've have Jedward promote Dragon Quest IX, but they draw the line at Justin Beiber.

    But really I think it's because they just are afraid the Mario license can't be used right in theatrical film.

    I'm not a big fan of either Scott Pilgrim, nor Michael Cera, but I still can't say I disagree with their decision. On a business standpoint, if they followed through with it, they would be labelled sellouts. However, Scott Pilgrim is built around retro video game references, so the decision was natural and simple.

    I'm Nintendo said 'No Chance!' To Justin Bieber, he's giving us Justin's (Yeah my name is Justin also) a bad rep! He's flirting, hitting any kind of gal he sees while not focusing on his career as a whole! I swear if he does get a chance to make his own album it will mostly be love soundtracks mixed with enimem influence into them. [​IMG]

    Justin Bieber needs to rip his contract now will he's still ahead, don't end up like one of P. Diddy bankruptcy's.

    Well, probably because Scott Pilgrim is just awesome. If they had Mario in the jb movie Ninty would lose fans that hate jb. Including me [​IMG] Well, unless they make jb dress up like a fat plumber.

    Screw Justin Beiber, have a nice beer [​IMG]

    Nintendo, not only do you get a cookie, you also get a slice of Princess Peach's cake.

    I mean, what could they possibly have used the Super Mario theme in a Justin Bieber movie for? It wouldn't make the movie better (but nothing could make that movie better), it would just make Mario look worse. Besides, most of the time anytime Nintendo lends the Mario license to someone, it always ends up badly.
