London, August 16 (ANI): Penelope Cruz, who has played a whole host of glamorous characters in the past, has transformed into the famous Italian plumber 'Super Mario' for a new Nintendo advert.
The 38-year-old sported the gaming icon's staple wardrobe of blue dungarees.
The 'Volver' star accessorised her gear with a red top along with matching cap with the letter 'M' emblazoned on it and gave her look the final touch by sticking on the character's trademark moustache, the Daily Mail reported.
The video, which also features the star's younger sister Monica, sees Cruz playing a Mario Bros game on her Nintendo 3DS before being joined by her kid sis.
The star, who is quickly beaten by Monica, is forced to dress as Mario and head to a grocery store as a part of the lost bet.
The actress is humorously forced to try her hand at an Italian accent and asks 'Can I have a mushroom?' as Monica giggles in the background. (ANI)
