Mama mia!

Super Mario Bro Luigi stopped by Chicago on Monday and, by the looks of it, had a pretty swell time while in town.

According to the RedEye, Luigi was in Chicago to help promote the Aug. 25 launch of "Super Luigi U" on the Wii U system. Between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. a special train on the CTA Brown Line was dubbed the "Luigi Line" for the day and wrapped --inside and out -- in green while Luigi himself hopped on for a ride.

Luigi also ignored the ill-advise of TripAdvisor.com users and made sure to track down some of Chicago's life-changing deep-dish pizza.

And he also admired some of the Windy City's signature architecture.
