Jack Westelman (also known as Danny Wells) passed away on Thursday at the age of 72, but you may know him best as Lou Albano's sidekick Luigi in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. It's a bit of a coincidence he died in this, the Year of Luigi. The show was one of my favorites growing up and was yet another reason why I cherish the Mario games and characters. He'll be greatly missed.

Rest in peace, Luigi.

It's certainly a sad end to the year of Luigi. He brought joy and entertainment to a great many people.

I only hope when I die that it can be the perfect punchline to a shitty marketing scheme.

Bummer though. I'll get drunk and watch some of that show this weekend.

I've been watching a few episodes of that show lately on Netflix.

Did you see that one where they're both in full drag with no facial hair? It's a trip.

The year of Luigi has been complete shit. Never give that fucker a year again. Fuck it, don't even give him a week.

Just heard about this today, can't tell you how much it bums me out. Super Mario Bros. Super Show was kinda dumb and definitely silly, but it was endearing in a way that can't probably happen in today's world.
