We’ve been thinking about this a lot, but we’re not sure there are many Nintendo characters we’d trust our lives, or even basic safety, with. Look at Mario jumping around over huge gaps and wielding fire without protective gear. Luigi isn’t much better! Kirby eats everything and we’re not sure that’s a good idea. And The kind of racing Captain Falcon does? We’ll never get in a car again after driving with him.

So who did Nintendo of America choose to use in an internal safety video? Ah yes, the incredibly sensible, resourceful, selfless Wario.

This 2004 safety video has been discovered by Rezrospect and archived by Forest of Illusion and covers everything from store visits to home safety, all accompanied by the dulcet tones of Wario’s voice. Wario interjects at various points to give some, um, unideal advice. But he learns throughout!

It’s a real blast from the past — look at the shelves full of GameCube games like Viewtiful Joe, Pikmin, Enter the Matrix, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II, and even GBA games lined up! There are guides (remember walking into a store and buying a guide?).

You can watch the whole safety video below, and thanks to Forest of Illusion for uploading this! We think Wario should be in all safety videos, even if he doesn’t give the best advice, he’s just trying (and staying true to himself!)

Let us know what you think of the video in the comments!

Ireland Baldwin Revealed Her Abortion Experience In A TikTok Where She Also Talked About Being Raped As A Teenager

In a TikTok captioned “I’m here for you,” the model and actor revealed that she was raped as a teenager, and that she also had an abortion later on in her life.


“I’m not here to tell this story today,” she said, “but I was raped when I was a teenager, and I was completely unconscious when it happened, and it changed the course of the rest of my life.”

Ireland says she didn’t tell anyone about the incident “for years” except a nurse who treated her after it occurred, and that being raped continued to affect her life for years afterwards.

“Seeing so many other brave women share their stories, got me thinking what my life would have been like if I had become pregnant,” Ireland explained, “and if I had to raise a baby during everything I was going through at the time.”

“Mind you, I have medical resources, money, and support that a lot of women do not have access to. It would have simply been traumatizing and impossible.”

Ireland also shared that, later in her life, she did become pregnant and chose to get an abortion.

“At that point in time, I would say we were very unhappy together,” Ireland said about the relationship she was in when she got pregnant. “And he made it clear that he never wanted kids or marriage. He barely wanted to be in a serious relationship.”

“I chose to get an abortion because I know exactly what it felt like to be born between two people who hated each other.”

“Could I have had that baby and put that baby up for adoption? Maybe. Maybe not. But choosing to raise a baby without my own financial security, without a loving and supportive partner, that wasn’t gonna work for me.”

“I chose me, and I would choose me again. It’s your life, it’s your choice.”

Kanye West Joked About His Divorce From Kim Kardashian During A Surprise BET Awards Appearance And Said He Wanted To Declare Himself “Legally Dead” Following Their Messy Feud

The rapper took to the stage to honor Sean “Diddy” Combs at the BET Awards on Sunday, making reference to Kim for the first time since their public dispute earlier this year.

Kanye West looks to be making a return to the public eye.

If you’re a fan of Ye’s, you’ll know that he recently took a step back from the limelight after his split from Kim Kardashian hit a major rough patch.

After filing for divorce fairly amicably back in February 2021, Kim and Ye’s breakup took a messy turn in November, around the time that things started getting serious between Kim and her current boyfriend, Pete Davidson.

Of course, in light of Kim’s budding romance with Pete, this made for quite the awkward situation, and as a result, Ye wound up taking his frustrations to social media.

Starting in February and posting regularly until mid-March, Ye harassed Kim and Pete on Instagram, sharing their private messages and even encouraging his fans to yell at them in public.

Ye’s constant posts sparked major concern among his followers, with many accusing the rapper of exhibiting abusive behavior toward Kim and Pete. And in March, his Instagram account was suspended for 24 hours after he violated the platform’s harassment policies.

Flash forward to today, and Ye is yet to make a full return to the public eye, having only been spotted on the occasional public outing.

Interestingly, reports in the aftermath of their feud claimed that the Yeezy founder was actively seeking “behavioral” treatment, in order “to be a better human and a better dad.”

Taking to the stage to present the Lifetime Achievement Award to his longtime friend Sean “Diddy” Combs, the Donda rapper — whose face was completely covered by a black mask, hat, and sunglasses — was met with loud applause from the crowd.

“How do we crown our kings? How do we appreciate our kings?” his speech began, before going on to praise Diddy’s work in the music industry.

“To see Puff in real life at the ‘Missing You’ video, just like me tapping free like a little kid — I just need to meet this man. This is my favorite artist,” he said, sounding noticeably upbeat.

“You see I’m saying ‘favorite artist,’” he clarified. “Everything — not specifically production, the drip. Back then there was so many rules to hip-hop, and he broke all of them.”

Reflecting on what he learned from Diddy in his own career, Ye even made reference to his failed marriage to Kim, sparking mixed reactions from the crowd.

“He inspired so many of my choices. So many of my life choices. My wife choices,” he said as the audience erupted into noise.

“And here we are,” he added with a laugh. “Thanks for that, Puff.”

What’s more, Ye also appeared to corroborate reports that he wanted to take “a year off” in the wake of his public feud with Kim, confirming in his speech that he recently took “a little hiatus.”

“I said, ‘I want to just declare myself legally dead for a year,’” he told the audience, seemingly referring to his absence since being banned from Instagram. “Nobody messin’ me. You know, I just want to be off the grid.”

But, despite his hopes of keeping a low profile, Ye seemed to suggest that the opportunity to honor Diddy was reason enough to return to the public eye.

“Puff is pretty persistent,” he explained. “Any of us in this room, if Puff ever need us, we need to jump and be there. This man has been through and survived a lot of stuff. Broke down a lot of doors so we could be standing. I know for me, that I could be here today.”

He finished the emotional speech by telling Diddy in the audience: “If I never told you, I love you. You’re my brother.”

So, in light of his absence from the spotlight, fans were certainly glad to see Ye sounding so positive, with this marking his first awards show appearance since he pulled out of Coachella in April and had his Grammys performance scrapped in the same month due to “concerning online behavior.”

The speech is also the first time that Ye has made reference to Kim since they came to blows on Instagram, and coincides with reports that the exes are currently working on rebuilding their relationship as co-parents.

In fact, just over a week ago, Kim gave her ex a rare shoutout too, praising him for being the “best dad” to their four kids in a sweet Father’s Day tribute.

Well, if Ye’s joke about their failed marriage is any indication, it seems like things might finally be looking a little more friendly between Kimye as they navigate the final stages of their split.
