(RNN) - Mario and Luigi have come to real life in a new video, jumping around and battling obstacles with a twist – it's all done Parkour.

This video is put together using extraordinary athleticism, remarkable graphics and video editing to bring you a Super Mario Bros. experience. No princesses or turtles were harmed during filming.

According to the YouTube video description, the two heroic plumbers are "doing what they do best: freerunning."

The stuntmen do tricks while collecting coins, bumping bricks, dodging fireballs and traveling through pipes.

The duo's video is set to the classic theme dashed with a hint of heavy metal, but it seems fitting for the pair.

The two Parkour experts in the clip are Ronnie Shalvis and Christian Russell. In the video, Christian plays Mario and Ronnie plays Luigi.

The biggest complaint YouTube users seem to have is Mario just can't seem to keep his hat on.

The men, who are already stunt stars, have also done a Star Wars and Assassin's Creed video showcasing their skills.

The clip was uploaded on Tuesday and has already been viewed nearly 1.5 million times.
