The Interactive Adventure, abbreviated TIA, is an episode of Stupid Mario Brothers that was released to YouTube on September 24, 2010. As its title suggests, it is an interactive adventure like Rich Alvarez's previous works Water Wars and Love Game: An Interactive Romance.
The series opens as Luigi catches Mario eating pasta. He repeatedly pushes his brother to pay rent or else they could lose things, such as Mario's pasta, his video games, and his embarrassing photos of Wario from the Mushroom Kingdom Christmas party.
Meanwhile, Wario is outside contemplating about Mario and Luigi, finding that since they do not pay rent, they will go back to the Mushroom Kingdom, finishing Wario's Season One premise. He is then met by Solid Snake, who wishes to help the Mario Brothers and questions Wario about it.
Just Be EvilEdit
Wario decides to help Mario and Luigi because he hopes that there will be a Golden Compass 2 in the Real World. The group then meets up and decide to go separate ways to get the money. Now the viewer chooses either Mario, Luigi, Wario, or Solid Snake.
After lazily sleeping, Mario has an argument with the audience and decides to go door-to-door putting himself for plumbing. After multiple failures, he is finally hired by Eddy. There, he notices the bad relationship that Eddy has with his wife Martha. Before he starts plunging Eddy's filthy toilet, the police come to the door. Upon hearing this, Mario sticks his head out of the bathroom and asks what is going on.
Panicking, Mario runs into one of the bedrooms and looks out the window. There are police officers everywhere, but Mario doesn't want to leave without the money. He starts to worry that this will be "the end of him". FAIL: TRAPPED!
Mario runs into one of the bedrooms and hides beneath a mattress. There is a man (portrayed by Julian Petruzzelli) in a black-and-white striped shirt sleeping on the other mattress in the room. After Mario hides, the man presses the mattress down with his foot.
Meanwhile, Eddy is looking for Mario, so the hero decides that he needs to somehow close the bedroom door.
Mario gets up to close the door, but Eddy manages to catch him and take him hostage. FAIL: YOU GOT CAUGHT!
Do a Bird CallEdit
Mario tries a bird call that fools Eddy. Thinking he is in the clear, Mario gets up. He knows that he has to escape, but doesn't want to leave without the money; so he tries to fake his own death. Knowing that Mario isn't really dead, Eddy takes him in his car. Mario then wakes up and panics, noticing that Eddy has a gun. Wishing he had his powers, Mario wonders how he'll get out of this situation.
Mario slaps Eddy, who asks why he did so. Mario then asks where his money is and Eddy assures him that he'll get it. The plumber asks if he really meant it, but he says no, disgruntling Mario. FAIL: A SLAP? WHO ARE YOU!
After a lot of struggling and swerving, Mario takes the gun from Eddy. He tells him he'll give his gun back when he gets his money. Eddy tells him that he never really had any money, but knew the cops were coming, so he needed a hostage. Mario demands that the man gives him what he has, then, but Eddy still insists that he never had any money. When Mario asks about his wife, Eddy says that she is tied up in the trunk, as "things are complicated between [them]". He tells Mario that he's a con artist, and a bad one, and that's why he got caught. Mario pleads, and says that he needs to pay his rent. Eddy tells him the location of a house belonging to Big Vinny, a mobster who has alot of money. He says that because Big Vinny is looking for him, there won't be many guards. Mario is then given a trench coat, sunglasses, and two guns and goes inside Vinny's house and shoots the man who answers the door.
Go Behind StairsEdit
Mario hides behind the stairs, but one of Vinny's guards puts a gun to his head, saying, "Game over." Mario proceeds to scream. FAIL: DEAD!
Go Behind Couch (Ending)Edit
Mario ducks behind the couch and one of Vinny's guards (the same one from "Go Behind Stairs") walks in and Mario shoots him multiple times, killing him. Mario is then confronted by four more guards with various melee weapons. In slow-motion, Mario shoots all of them, and when the camera goes back to normal speed all four of them fall dead at the same time. Mario takes off his sunglasses, puts them on the table, and goes upstairs. There, he is confronted by a seventh guard who has a ski mask and two swords. Mario shoots the guard and goes inside Vinny's room. There, Vinny is counting his money. Vinny pulls out a gun but Mario reacts quickly and fires first, killing him. Mario then steals the money from Vinny's case but puts $10 in his hand to throw the cops of his trail. As he leaves, he realises that that his heist was out of character and that he is usually a fun loving video game character, but brushes this off as he at least got his money. MARIO COMPLETE!
Luigi is in the house figuring out how to get money. He goes to the closet and finds a vacuum cleaner. He then can use it.
Luigi uses the vacuum to clean up the house powered by a generator. He cleans throughout the house making sure not miss anything. After he finishes, he wonders why he decided to clean the house in the first place. However, the house looks nice and tidy and he is certain that Mario will be pleased with him when he gets home. FAIL: OLD MAID!
Luigi decides to use the vacuum to catch ghosts in order to earn some money. Then he wonders where to find ghosts and people to pay him. The doors knocks and Luigi goes straight to it, only to finding a letter for him. It states that Luigi has won a mansion and he must report there right away to get it. Luigi doesn't remember entering a contest, but says he can sell the mansion for money. Later that night, he arrives at the mansion with his vacuum cleaner.At the front door is the owner of the mansion. He then gives it to Luigi inside but the lights are dark and Luigi suddenly begins to fear something is up. The original owner leaves Luigi by himself. The lights go dark and Luigi turns on his flashlight to see. Spotting a ghost he wonders where his vacuum cleaner disappeared to.
Look By CouchEdit

Use Flash LightEdit
Luigi decides to use his flashlight but it doesn't scare the ghosts away. The ghosts surround him, kill him , and proceed to eat him. FAIL: DEAD AGAIN! FAILURE IS YOUR BEST FRIEND!

The camera changes to show part of a wig sticking out of a wall. His mother (a guy playing a woman) asks Richie if he's still dressing up as Mario, even though he's 22 years old.

The camera shows Richard's brown stuffed bear "eating" Cheetos (a hand is rubbing it against a closed bag of Cheetos) Richie asks if he can have some, but the bear "turns" to him and simply says, "no." Rich is upset because he thinks nobody likes him.
Beginning: "ICE-E Break Up"Edit

Click the OR in "Look By Couch OR Run Away." Dug the Dog introduces himself, but Julian says that he's dumb. Dug says that he has been hiding underneath Julian's house, because he loves him.

He says he'll leave, because he loves him. He leaves, but comes back two seconds later, saying that he left and came back, because he loves Julian. "Great," Julian says, rolling his eyes.
Run Away: "DK Rap"Edit
Click the OR in "Plug in Vacuum OR Use Flash Light." Using rap, Donkey Kong introduces himself (I'm D-K, Donkey Kong), but Julian tells him that he's not a rapper, and that he's just a monkey.

Beginning: "Pac-Man Wakka"Edit
Click the OR in "Rob People OR Become A Rapper." Julian is standing, not saying anything, when Richie runs into the shot wearing his Pac-Man hat saying "wakka" repeatedly.

Rob People: "Bunny"Edit
Click the OR in "Blend In With the Surroundings OR Pretend You're A Pirate." A bunny is dancing and singing when Julian points a gun at his head, saying, "Got you, Bunny." The bunny screams.
Pretend You're A Pirate: "Richie's Stuffed Animals"Edit
Click the OR in "Run Away OR Stand and Fight." Richard is at the round table, playing with all of his stuffed animals. Chris asks him, "What are you doing?!" Richie tells him he's playing with his stuffed animals, but Chris tells him that no one wants to see him with his stuffed animals. Richard holds up his brown stuffed bear and says, "But this is my Lake Tahoe Bear!" Chris tells him to stop doing that and get serious, and that people want Season 4. Disguising his voice to pretend that the Lake Tahoe Bear is talking, Richie says, "But people wanna see Barry the Tahoe Bear!" Chris puts his hand on his forehead, mutters to himself that he's dealing with a crazy person, and walks away. The "bear" says that he isn't crazy, just Barry cute. (A pun of very)
Assassinate Pizza: "Imma Horse"Edit
Click the OR in "People Person OR Anti-Social Person." Julian is standing there as a stuffed horse "gallops" in, singing "Imma horse, Imma horse, Imma horse horse horse!" (to the tune of the finale of Giachino Rossini's William Tell Overture) Julian tells him to leave, and that he never wants to see him again. The horse replies, "Awww, Imma horse!" but Julian states that he's not even a horse, he's a mule (half horse, half donkey) The horse/mule asks if he's cute, but Julian says no. The mule "bucks" and "nays."
Anti-Social Person: "Goomba"Edit
Click the OR in "Go Through Window OR Knock on Door." Julian is about to step on the stuffed Goomba, who says he is pissed because he always gets stepped on. He says it hurts. Julian tells him to just don't get stepped on, but the Goomba says he's so small, though. Julian says, "Uhh...sorry...I don't know what to say." The Goomba asks if he can step on him, but Julian says no and steps on him.
Go In Window: "Yoshi's Island"Edit
Click the OR in "Steal Something OR Kidnap Man." Yoshi says he wishes he had an island, but Julian says no, because he's a fan. He says that no one wants to see just Yoshi on an island, because it's "just not fun." Yoshi pouts, and Julian says that that sounds like the worst game ever, because people want to play as Mario, not Yoshi. He then calls Yoshi a gimmick. Yoshi asks what that is, and Julian simply answers, "It's you, Yoshi. It's you." Yoshi asks if that's bad, and Julian says yes.
At the end of every character's story, you have the option to "Stop Watching." This leads you to a video that starts with Richard taking a drink and spitting it out. He exclaims that you clicked "Stop Watching." He asks if it was that bad, then apologizes, and asks you to forgive him. He asks you not to unsubscribe, and says that if people start unsubscribing, he starts to melt and turn into a huge fat ogre who eats children. He then says, "But seriously, please change your character or watch the ending if you've already done all four characters. If you stop watching, you won't find out about Season 4. ...What? Did I say Season 4?!"
