Penelope Cruz dresses as Mario for Nintendo Super Mario Bros. 2 ad



One of the hottest bombshells in Hollywood is donning some overalls and a mustache for an ad campaign. Penelope Cruz and sister Monica are featured in a new advertisement for New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the handheld 3DS.

This is not Nintendo's first foray into getting a big name to hawk its products -- far from it. The company has previously used Robin Williams, Kim Cattrall and Beyonce in its various ads. And they aren't the only video game company to do so.

XBox has employed teen pop sensation Justin Bieber and his mentor Usher, and Sony's Playstation used Harrison Ford in a Japanese advertisement for game "Uncharted 3."

What do you think of the Cruz sisters as the Mario brothers?
