Find Super Mario Galaxy Illusion

Chris submitted this funny gag few days before! It has been circulating the net lately, but I haven’t seen it previously, since I’m not the biggest fan of Super Mario (been playing PC games as a kid, not Nintendo). Basically what Chris wants you to do, is to find all the letters with shiny star beneath them, and read them aloud as you normally would. Be ware only to read starred letters. You will then be astonished by secret you’ll find out about yourself. I think it starts with “Ur Mr. …” Was I right? Enjoy! More awesome and true optical illusions coming shortly… Please don’t spoil the fun, and reveal the hidden message, as either way I won’t publish those comments containing the solve.

P.S. Congrats to those of you who got out of the Crimson Room. You rock!

  3. I saw this a few days ago, and at first I didnt get it. After a while, I got it, and well, I was kinda speechless. What kind of sick person would do such a thing…XD

  4. Not offensive per se, but definitely in bad taste. It is not befitting the quality that MoIllusions otherwise produces. I would seriously consider removing this and offering a brief apology. With this following up a string of so-so illusions I may have to consider removing my google widget.

  5. hehehehehe thats very funny. all u have 2 do is look for the letters with the shiny star underneath it, and is says something funny! lol

  6. RFOL! that was awesome. btw, anyone who finds it offensive has prolly never met a gay person. i know a couple who’ve seen it and thought it was funny. you’ve got to learn jokes from serious crap. have fun!

  7. I wouldn’t call it offensive. It’s just stupid and childish. If you can’t do better than this soon, I will remove my widget.

  8. Some people are funnier then the actual topic. Haha How do you find that offensive…It took me three trys for the answer. That is funny.

  9. People on here need to learn to take a JOKE!!! Its a joke, you know if the world would learn to take a damn joke then maybe we wouldn’t have so many problems!!

  10. This was pretty funny, but somtimes people get offended. I’m just saying that you need to be careful and understand what it is first… But I can’t lie. It was funny to me.

  11. I think this should be taken down right away it is very rude and offensive like fjp999 said! I personally think that things like that should not be said to just anyone it could really make someone feel bad and that is the reason there is so much junk in this world today! It is really wrrong!

  12. I think the hidden message is not referring to the reader at all. I played Mario Bros as a kid very often and I can tell you that Mario always was a little bit too close with his brother Luigi. So I think the plummer is finally coming out of the closet.

  13. idk about the most of the rest of you, but i found this offensive as all hell. please, next time you come across something like this, don’t even look twice at it.

  14. BTW: I don’t understand why this one should be “offensive”?!
    Would it be offensive if the letters said “U R HETERO”?
    Oh my, grow up, America!

  15. moillusions has clearly displayed immaturity in posting this one. how can anyone find it funny? As soon as as demographics start being targeted by stuff like this, how long before it gets offensive to the point of breaching laws, that is, if someone can demonstrate that it hasn’t already?

  16. well thats funny but slightly homophobic (not that i am.. y’know)

    to help all you dumbasses out there:

    letters with stars underneath:
    here is the first line:
    sUpeR. u and r have a star underneath. find all of them going line by line of the title and write them down. then read it out how it is.. u..r…

  17. hey if the gays want to be gays then let them but theyre in the wrong so they should put up with the abuse & u’s should quit moaning about it. yeah it offensive, gays offend me!

  18. Hey, to anyone who finds this offensive: Why?

    Are you so unsure about yourself?

    I mean, you can argue about whether this is funny or even a good “optical illusion”…but offensive? Please! Get real!

  19. Geez people lighten up. Its ment to be funny, and it succeeded to be fair. Quiet clever to use letters in the right order to make new words. And why cant Mr Gay be considered funny? ive quiet a few gay mates and tease them about sleeping with men all the time, they tease me about my glasses and then we will tease another mate and another mate for being fat.

    Its all just a laugh at the end of the day

  20. its a joke,
    you know when people say something that isn’t literally true that has a funny meaning.
    I don’t think people should read so much into this, i’m talking to you Andrew btw. What kind of day and age is this where some1 can’t make a funny thats slightly politically incorrect without people demanding its taken down with an apology. Grow up, if you don’t like it don’t look at it, theres no need to spoil everyone elses fun.

  21. I don’t get it. I see the offence but that’s if you make words with some of the letters, but you said to read the letters as normal, i.e. U,R,M,R… and not Ur Mr… So it reads like “You are Emma Jeeyay why”??? or “You are a Marjie a why”??? Neither make sense. Can anyone make out any more? Not an illusion at all!

  22. I think anyone that honestly finds this offensive should grow up. It is usually those who actually make a big deal about this that are the ones who actually consider people differently per their race, sexual preference etc. The rest of us are comfortable with ourselves and others and don’t see it as anything more than a light hearted joke. You don’t get all worked up when someone makes comments about people who are fat, thin, short etc so why are things like race and sexual preference such as big deal?

  23. Ho thats offensive boo hoo. get over yourselves its just a funny little tidbit its not intended to insult anybody, and there have been way lamer things on this site.

    at least with this i got a laugh.


  24. Do all you people saying this is inappropriate not realize that this is a Japanese company making this game and they are probably using the “offensive” word in its true meaning HAPPY.

  25. Are you kidding me with this? It’s completely childish and offensive and I think your site visitors deserve an apology.

    I especially like how my last comment on the subject was deleted.

  26. sheesh people, get a grip will you. How many people who are gonna buy this game do you think would really take notice at that? Personally i dont find anything real Offensive but maybe cause i can Tolerate things better than others. Took me a while to get it but i think its funny. I mean remember all that stuff about hidden messages in Disney movies? this is no different than that.

  27. boy was that bad…childish and pointless. was it offensive?, no. i am gay myself and a person would really have to be an extremely uptight little fag to be offended over something so puerile…now if mario had been carrying a purse and wearing a feather boa and maybe some stilleto heels that could have been funny.

  28. Appalling, and in the current climate of Europe trying to deal with e-bullying. All you have done is add more ammunition to the bullies’ arsenal. It is very irresponsible to promote such homophobia by posting a picture so obviously targeted at a young demographic

  29. WHAT?! It’s not offensive. Don’t take it down; it’s fine. It’s not 100% fitting to the site, but is not totally “MR ____”

    I agree that lately, the illusions are not the ‘cream of the crop’, but you try finding a new one everyday. If you think you can do better-than SUBMIT one!! I’m sure he’d be glad to post it.

    Vurdlak, I hope you take everyone’s comments with a grain of salt. If they don’t like it-let ’em go. There are plenty who can handle a joke. After all, it’s not like you MADE the ‘illusion’, just found it.

    Funny-ah, so-so
    Illusion-sort of, more of a hidden message
    Fit the site-sure, why not!

  30. Where did anyone use it meaninglessly or offensive, it simply spells it out no one is being mean here. You are making a big deal out of nothing.

  31. I didn’t find it funny at all because there is nothing surprising about that term being used. its a common phrase (or similar) used by todays society that shouldn’t be

  32. What happened to the “illusion” part of “Optical Illusion of the Day”? This is just dumb, and so have the last 2 weeks on this page. How about putting up actual illusions?

  33. C’mon people, let’s not be ridicolous! Offensive in what way??? Let’s not exagerate! If the last word was not that one, but the “opposite” Im sure nobody would have complained…

  34. It’s not the box art that offends me. I think that it’s just a stupid coincidence.

    What offends me is people using the word as an insult. Ridiculing a group of people is about as funny as a bag of drowned kittens.

    What offends me even more are the neanderthals who are defending this sort of juvenile vitriol. Would it be as funny if it was the N-word? How about “jap,” “chink,” or “spic?”

    I will not be returning to

  35. LoL I didn’t like this one but it wasn’t because of the gay part, But i think alot of the comments people are putting on here are really GAY, lighten up people. :)

  36. One of the worst things I’ve ever seen on this site. Not really offensive to me, but still in very bad taste. Makes me wonder if I will really come back.

  37. For those who don’t understand why this type of juvenille humour is offensive, substitute the homophobic slur with a racially based one and decide for yourself if that kind of comment would be appropriate for a site such as this. Frankly I’m not offended, per se, but disappointed. Haven’t we, as a people, grown beyond this kind of infantile joke? It’s NOT an optical illusion, so it doesn’t belong here. Using words in such a way dehumanizes people and makes it easier to discriminate against them by establishing them as the “other” in an us versus them paradigm. You can do better here.

  38. I agree with Steve. It’s not offensive, it’s just disappointing and dumb. There is nothing remotely illusionish here. Illusions are cool because they surprise you and make you think. Oh well. It’s got to be hard to find great stuff all the time, but this sure ain’t it.

  39. for gods sake dont get offended its just a bit of fun people christ people threatening to not look again need to get a life.

    anyway not the best but amusing.

  40. uhh…that was kinda stupid and immature. not saying you should take it down or anything, but how is that funny unless you’re a 9 year old boy?

  41. I think it is mildly offensive, but nothing to get wound up about. It is probbably intended as a slightly sick joke or to mean ‘Happy’. or it could have been unintentional.

    still slightly funny though

  42. it’s not offensive, it’s just dumb. and if an occasional dumb act is not forgiveable, then none of us deserve to be here.

    get over yourselves, people.

  43. You know how I know your gay?

    You keep complaining about this dumb picture.

    It is a SAD world that everybody has to be so politically correct that no one ever gets their feelings hurt. You can’t make everyone happy.

  44. Thank god i that am European and that i don’t have to be politically correct all the time. Don’t take yourself so terribly serious you funny Americans

  45. Those of you that feel this is offensive, try picking up a dictionary once in a while and looking up the word “gay.” You’d be surprised what the deffinition actually is!



    YOU GET IT NOW? If you get offended, your a N00B.

  47. This has nothing to do with being PC, calling people names has never been acceptable. (I’m not American, I’m from one of the most liberal countries in Europe, kids over there learn not to yell hurtful things at each other)

  48. You know guys… this truly show how the times have changed our way of thinking… to those of you that are a little less educated, the word “gay” first meant: to be happy or joyful. This illusion was meant to be funny. It was for me. Thank you for all of the time that is put into displaying these illusions. To those of you that think that it is offensive, well, may you guys need to get a real life… maybe one that is a little more gay!

  49. Just think? If everyone was GAY, we would die out as a human race within about a hundred years. Think about it people! It is wrong! Quit trying to be “politically correct” and just be CORRECT!

  50. Why is everyone commenting on how not offensive it is? This is an illusion site. You are supposed to just enjoy the illusions ok. So one or two people find it offensive. You don’t have to make such a big deal of it.

  51. Hilarious. More hilarious the idiocy of people. It’s a joke, and I doubt these people care if you remove your Google widget or not, honestly. My personal favorite is
    “Not offensive per se, but definitely in bad taste. It is not befitting the quality that MoIllusions otherwise produces. I would seriously consider removing this and offering a brief apology. With this following up a string of so-so illusions I may have to consider removing my google widget.”
    How funny is this?

  52. I made it to comment 46-ish before i got tired of people bitching about how “offensive” and “degrading” this picture is. If you don’t like it, move on with your life and don’t bitch about it, less gets done that way. I’m gay, I thought it was funny. Probably 99% of you who think it’s offensive are straight and think that we are offended by everything. Shut up and quit whining about it. (yes i realize im being a bit hypocritical, it happens)


  53. Wow, that is so dumb
    “UR MR GAY’
    I thought you guys meant the star that’s right behind Mario, the blue thing under the star there are a couple of letters
    It looks like ‘T 2 Y G M T N X S 8’

    Or maybe I’m psycho xD

  54. No kdmaster, it dosent say that it says something else, ill give you a clue, where it says super mario galaxy, look for the leeters that have a spark underneath it, some might say its offensive some might not, have fun

  55. to anonymous (#153) yes, it does say “UR MR happy” – you need to think about what the last word means.

    To all others – this is not offensive, nor is it meant to be. Go over to England, and tell the first person who asks you for a ‘fag’ (a cigarrete, btw) that he’s being offensive, and he’ll tell you you’re crazy. You can’t decide a word is offensive simply because others choose to use it in slander or poor judgement. Get over the whole politically-incorrect feud and see it for what it is – a clever way to create an entire (albeit meaningless) sentence from within a group of letters. Has anyone ever tried this with license plates on a road trip? Same thing.

  56. Found it! Don’t really think it’s funny, XD but it’s a good illusion-code-like-thing XD

    For everybody who’s offendid by this: haven’t you got a life? How sad is it to feel offended by a sentence like “ur mr gay” are you that insecure about yourself and your sexual preference?
    Gay can be explained in other ways then just homosexual by the way, wich makes it even more stupid to be offendid by this.
    Thereby is being a homosexual a quite normal and generaly accepted sexual preference, so what’s the problem? Being offendid by this is really immature almost like “eeeew it’s a girl, I’d never come near a girl!” but then “eeeew it’s a gay person, I’d never be gay, eeew!”
    Recognise how 10-year-olds talk about girls? Then reflect it on your talk about being gay or being called gay.
    It’s just sad and short-minded to be offended by a sentence like “you are mister gay”

  57. Guys, I’m pretty sure it’s a reference to the movie “Dreamcatcher”, based on the book by Stephen King. One of the characters has a disability and talks about “Mr. Gray” but the way he speaks makes it sound like “Mr. Gay”.

  58. i find this offensive and it should be taken down immediately , in fact this whole site should be taken down. Vurdlak should be fined and banned from posting to the internet. JK This is really funny

  59. omg!!!!!!!!lol!!that was funny!!!it took me like fifteen minutes to actually understand it!!but still awesome!!!!!!!!!lol!!!!

  60. This IS FUNNY! So those who think it is offensive, YOU get a SENSE OF HUMOR!!! Gosh, they were KIDDING in this picture!

  61. does anyone else know that donkey kong got its name because the people at nintendo looked in a dictionary and found the definition for donkey as “a stubborn animal” and asumed all stubborn animals were called donkeys. they probably did the same thing with gay, assuming people would know that they meant happy.

    while thats probably what happened, i’d rather go with the dream catcher alien conspiracy. ^_^

  62. Omg anonymous 71 read my thoughts…! It’s really annoying when people try act as heroes of justice. It’s not like this is the most offending thing there can be. This is a joke that simply MENTIONS the word gay. No one said that anyone here would use it as an insult.

  63. how pathetic an insecure have you got to be to think that this is in any way offensive?

    To consider it offensive you’ve got to have the pre-conception that “gay” is a bad thing, a derogatory term.

    “gay” as a term for homosexuals came about during protests for equality and acceptance, standing for “Good As You”. I think it’s incredibly depressing how politically correct people feel they have to be.

    If it had been “u r a c*nt” i’d be offended, but it’s not, it’s Gay, a word, get over it and grow up.

    Also, i personally think that this is just a coincidence and not intended to be “deciphered”

  64. LOL that is hilarious. And it’s not offensive at all I don’t think. I know like 8 gay people and they all laughed hestarically when I showed them. Plus I think its kinda cool that a bunch of people who devote their lives to Mario are okay with saying he is gay. IDK it just seems kinda accepting to me. I like it

  65. its really not that serious i doubt someone sat there and put stars next to certain letters to spell something so stupid. grow up

  66. To the people who say it should be taken down, this is what the actual game box looks like, it wasn’t doctored in any way. So anybody can look up the game and see the same thing if they’re creative enough.

  67. Yes it can be offensive if think that way BUT if you look in different a meaning. And I think it is appropriate. Can’t u see that he is Smiling and happy.

    Ok ba?

  68. okay I seriously don’t know what to do. Can someone post an easier explanation? Obviously the person who posted this link did not realize ALL STARS are shiny. Wat a ****in idiot

  69. OK! you’ve gotta be kidding me, it’s the original cover, how dare you nintendo!! i love this game! i’m only 10 dont you know!

  70. hint, number of letters are the number of syllables the title has, just too much for me, i love mario, i played that since i was little

  71. ha that is really funny
    what you do is you look at the title ‘super mario galaxy’ and write down only thae letters in the title that have shiny stars under them and it spells out something funny (with a few words, i mean)

  72. Hey vurdlak i thot u said u werent gonna let ppl give away the answer? meh. nvm nice site btw im a reg visitor here. OPTICAL ILLUSIONS 4EVA!

  73. Ur mr gay but how is that an illushon all u do is follow the stared letters who ever finds that an illushion is stupid (no effence)

    1. You don’t reserve the right to call people stupid when your sentence is at a kindergarteners spelling level. Let me correct your sentence and rewrite it how it should have been written. “It says ur Mr Gay, but how is that an ILLUSION, all YOU do is follow the STARRED letters, whoever finds that to be an ILLUSION is stupid, no OFFENSE.” The all capped words were misspelled and I added a few words to help.. btw let me get real… HOW THE FUCK DO YOU MISSPELL ILLUSION WHEN ITS WRITTEN IN THE WEBSITES ADDRESS BAR AND THE TOP OF THE FUCKING PAGE.. sorry if I hurt your feelings… but I for one am sick of the deteriorating brain power of people in my country… if you live in America atleast learn english.. if nothing else atleast learn english fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck FUCKKKKKKK… sorry I’m done.

  74. ….Delishia Harding…. You are calling people stupid when you can’t spell illusion and it’s ALL OVER the site. offense, too. o.o

    I say it’s funny, but soooo mean. I guess Nintendo doesn’t think highly of their mascot and the gamers that support them.

  75. Actually they are not calling us Mr Gay that is simply how one man (I forget his name) Said the name Mr Gray. I scoff at you for not realizing this when a twelve year old (me) could figure it out! Please pardon any grammatical errors in this comment, remember I am only 12. I did skip 2 grades though.

    1.… Wow I’ll well never guess… Lol .. lol .. MR.HOMOSEXUAL Haaa I like that one. Lol. …

  76. Ya know what the real illusion is?
    Making a piece of crap like Super mario galaxy and all of the other 5 cent mario spin-offs sound like actually worth while games.

  77. yo Truth, you do realize that Super Mario Galaxy is one of the real sequels to Super Mario 64 right? Besides, I’d preffer a Mario spin-off game to ANOTHER Call of Duty… Seriously, Nazis and other terrorists get boring after a while.

  78. I love this website! But why not post comments that contain the answer? I find it very frustrating to see the Find the Fault/Spot the Differences, etc., pictures and not have the answers.

  79. omg ive got to show my friend that he has it and when i show him hes gona be so angry at nintendo now


  80. I also found another one, the M goes over the A in Mario, but that should be impossible, since the letters has that depth 3D.


  81. I thought you were not supposed to post the solve! and the second post was the answer. Why? why? why??????
    So in response to the solve………what the frig? It’s just ridiculous and dum.

  82. Is this supposed to be a reference to the sci-fi movie “Dream Catcher”, or was Nintendo just trying to be immature

  83. WOW Nintendo is paranoid.
    They changed the title in some countries I think because it was too inappropriate. GOSH, Nintendo.

  84. Where am I suppose to be looking because I have the game but am not seeing it I know its not on the cover so where

    1. For those who are having trouble finding the hidden message. Start by looking at the “u” in the word “Super.” See the yellowish star in the lower left? Find those on all the other letters in the title.

  85. woooooow i never thought to look at tht. it kinda makes since because i mean, look at where tht sparkly dust is going o.o

  86. This is funny? This is an illusion? That’s just.. so incredibly not humorous. I think stumble upon took me to this page. This is getting a thumbs down. This is just fucking stupid? And you people think this is funny? THIS is comedy? It’s not even a hidden message, it’s just a random coincidence. I am making note to never visit the entirety of this web site ever again because of this one post.

    LOL UR MR. GAY, oh, my spleen.

  87. It reads ‘U R MR. GAY!’ or in proper english, ‘YOU ARE MR. GAY!’. HAHA!

    My photo.

  88. Ya’ll are stupid, this wasn’t done for innuendo reasons. It’s just some stars on Super Mario Galaxy. Typical Mario name. And it’s in space, so there will be stars.


  90. This one is rather feeble, really. As are those who revealed it, despite being asked not to, and those whose comments are offensive. This is like some schoolchild’s attempt at wit.

  91. In 2012 there are still people who snigger like children at the word gay ? I thought that we had progressed beyond that stage, but it would appear not.

  92. See the letter “Super Mario Galaxy”, some letters have a sparkling stars below them. Write the letters with sparkling stars on a paper, you will notice something suprising
