And finally… 8-bit judges

A court celebrated its achievements over the past year by publishing a video on social media portraying one of its judges as the famous video game character Mario.

The three-minute video sees “Super Mario Mr Judge” smashing bricks representing various law enforcement milestones, including handling over 800 corruption cases.

However, the clip was pulled from social media after members of the public questioned whether the Hunan Higher People’s Court in China had permission from Nintendo for its bizarre parody.

The video had first appeared on an official Weibo account of the Communist Party of China central committee’s national body for political and legal affairs, but was later deleted, the South China Morning Post reports.
