Penelope and Monica Cruz lounge around in tiny shorts before suddenly dressing as Mario in a Nintendo commercial which may leave you with confused feelings.

In case you missed it, this ad is for New Super Mario Bros 2, which encourages you to challenge your mates – and tanned siblings – to beat each other’s Coin Rush scores and coin collection totals.

It comes out exclusively for 3DS on August 17 in Europe, August 18 in Australia, and August 19 in the US and will be available from the eShop in addition to retail release.
