Penelope Cruz Dresses As Super Mario In New Nintendo Ad (PHOTO, VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Penélope Cruz looks good even with a mustache.

Cruz dressed up as Super Mario for a new Nintendo 3DS ad in which she stars alongside her sister, Monica.

Cosplay is certainly something different for the 38-year-old, who is best known as a super-sultry Spanish actress and model. In the Nintendo ad, she trades in the sexy curve-hugging outfits she typically wears for a pair of blue overalls and a handlebar mustache.

Penélope winds up in the Super Mario costume after she loses a game of "Super Mario Bros. 2" while playing against her sister.

"You know what you have to do," says Monica.

"Ok! Bring it on," says Penélope.

Odd? Maybe. Adorable? Definitely.

"Penélope Cruz‘s latest project? Serving as spokeswomen for Super Mario Brothers along with her sister, Mónica. Random, but totally adorable," writes People magazine.

Some felt the Cruz sisters' ad was missing something.

"It all ends in impressive, slightly awkward cosplay," wrote Vulture's Kyle Buchanan. "And a missed opportunity for her sister to dress up as Luigi."
