NARRATOR
Somewhere deep in the frozen expanse of the South Pole... Bowser's brand new castle looms large. Deep within, the chief Koopa hunches in his room of gloom, plugging in high-powered hairdryers. Soon he will throw the main switch, melting snowballs from Stockholm to Sacramento. Thousands of penguins will be left homeless, while well-padded Polar bears overheat. Hope is running thin down here where the ice runs thick!
MARIO
[walking with Luigi and Yoshi] Come on, 'bro, you're dragging.
LUIGI
I'm practically a popsicle, Mario. Are we there yet?
NARRATOR
But wait! It's those stouthearted pipefitters from New York! This is a ray of hope!
MARIO
We're there. All I can see are turtle tracks. Whaddaya say we give Bowser the old Brooklyn one-two.
LUIGI
The Brooklyn what? Hey lookit, there's his pad. But the walls are awfully high. Say, M, I left my toothbrush back in the Big Apple...
NARRATOR
Can Mario persuade him to stay? The weatherman predicts record high temperatures in the South Pole without those two!
MARIO
[the drawbridge opens] I'm going in, 'bro. Those krazy Koopas must be stopped or all this will soon be puddles!
LUIGI
Right, I'll watch the back door. Be way careful M, Bowser's one rascally reptile. And remember, don't take candy from strangers.
NARRATOR
Good advice.
LUIGI
Hmmm... guess he took a wrong turn in there. Hey, these walls aren't so tall when you get up close. That does it - I'm going in!
