"Rawest Forest" by Martin Hagwell

"Beware the Forest Mushrooms" by Yoko Shimomura

Back in 2007, the last Flash animation I did as I was graduating High School and entering College was a music video based on "Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars" for the Super Nintendo, a game that I have over a decade of history with. Yoko Shimomura's music is a huge part of what's so amazing about this game, "Beware the Forest Mushrooms" (theme of the "Forest Maze" stage) being one of her most highly regarded compositions. DJ XBrav created a lyrical version of the song that took the internet by storm many years ago, evolving into a meme that fans of the game all know and love. Martin Hagwell later remixed this into the popular "Rawest Forest" song, which I later used as the song for the music video that has now received millions of views in the past several years.

Today, as the last Flash animation I'm doing as I graduate College and enter into the rest of my life: Myself, Blake "ShadyVox" Swift, Bryon "Psyguy" Beaubien and Musical Mike Patterson, have joined forces to bring you a new version of the popular Forest Maze composition from Super Mario RPG, paying tribute to both XBrav's and Marta's remixes as well as Yoko Shimomura's original piece. This animation was done over the course of two weeks, as opposed to the original music video that was finished in one week. I crammed in as many geeky references in there as I possibly could to show my appreciation for this amazing game and I hope everyone who's ever played Super Mario RPG will get a big smile in remembering all the fun stuff from Mario and company's adventures. Big thanks as well to my creative partners that helped in making this song and everyone who supported me during the animation process.

Follow Geno's route there!

Bi-Polar Thoughts lol

At first when I listened to this, I wasn't sure what to make of it... I love Kirbopher and ShadyVox, especially for Kirbs work in Brawl Taunts, and Shady's Jaden raps. But I also gotta give credit to the others, never heard of'em, but without'em this wouldn't have been possible, so kudos to you to! Uhh... Either way, I am getting distracted! So, at first I thought i was 'Meh... It's pretty cool, love Kirb and Shade, but it just... Sounds off, and there's something about Kirbs singing... For once something doesn't appeal to me like it usually does', but, I wanted to be sure, so I listened to it again... And again.. .And again, and then eventually it got stuck in my head, and I ended up loving it! I just needed a few times to listen to it :3 Took time to grow on me lol But now it's gonna find it's way on my iPod, already showed it to my bro and he hates it... because it gets stuck in his head ;) lol So, overall review, it is spectacular! Great job to you all!
