Former voice actor and newly appointed United States Mario ambassador, Charles Martinet, finds himself in a precarious situation as he takes shelter in the basement of the embassy due to mass Koopa Troopa riots. The State Department confirmed the ambassador's safety but highlighted the escalating violence in the Mushroom Kingdom.
Martinet expressed his fear and surprise at the unstable situation in Mario Land. While he had hoped that his new role would allow him to channel his anger at being replaced by Chris Pratt, he now faces the volatile Koopa Troopa protests. Across the land, Koopa Troopas are engaging in violent riots and setting go-karts on fire.
One of the Koopa Troopa organizers, Gary Shelldon, shed light on some of the motivations behind the unrest. The lack of wage increases, with Koopa Troopas earning just one golden coin per shift since 1985, has created a sense of injustice and income inequality. The Koopas stand in solidarity with other unions, such as the WGA, UAW, and the Bokoblins, who are on the verge of authorizing a strike.
Former State Department employees offered advice and guidance to Ambassador Martinet, understanding the challenges he faces. They emphasized the importance of caution and authenticity in his position. Additionally, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recommended carrying a bottle of hot sauce, reminiscent of her own experiences, as a symbol of being prepared.
Reports from the Mushroom Kingdom indicate that the situation is escalating further. A group of Goombas has reportedly stormed Bowser's Castle and even took selfies in Ludwig Von Koopa's throne, signifying a growing reactionary movement.
