Aussie TV accidentally interviews voice of Mario

Player Attack: Even though he voices one of the most recognisable characters in the world, Charles Martinet is a pretty unassuming fella in person. In fact, to an Australian tv station, the silver-haired Californian was just another one of thousands affected by an incident at Melbourne Airport. (3DS, Charles Martinet, Culture, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

WOW. That's so weird, but awesome. Out of all the people. He must have been his happy chirpy self for the news organization to want to interview him!

They didn't know who he was. He was just interviewed by chance, because he was affected by the airport incident. You'd be surprised how many people can't put the face to the Mario voice.

I wouldn't have caught that lol

GameLord08, I know... That's why I said "Out of all the people". He's usually happy and chirpy so the organization probably chose him instead of someone with a hoody over their head or something sitting down with their head buried in their arms.

@YoungsterJoey - How dare you use logic to answer my question! Lol

Actually it wouldnt be 1 in 6,000,000,000 because they didnt have access to every person on the planet as an option to interview.

You cant just look at it and say "oh well their chances are 1 and then the population of people" because it doesnt work that way. How many people were at the airport and affect by this?

@WiiUAlpha
I'm pretty sure you're putting too much thought into this...
WiiUalpha  +   944d ago
LOL.. No thought required to know that. LOL. I feel sorry for you if you thought that required a lot of thinking to come up with.

he looks like robin williams
TBD  +   948d ago
He acts like him, too, it's a little unnerving.

Being a gamer and not knowing who Charles Martinet is is like being a movie buff and not knowing who Arnie is.

Being a gamer and not knowing who Mario is is like being a movie buff and not knowing who Arnie is... Being a gamer and not knowing who the voice of Mario is like being a movie buff and not knowing who Carl Theodor Dreyer is.

There is a difference between not knowing and not giving a shit, you know.

Even if you know the name you might not know the face.

Not really. It's not like he does a ton of voices for all sorts of games. He does Mario and occasionally some others. It's not like he's fucking Nolan North where there's a solid 8:10 chance he voices somebody in the game you're playing.
