… to disastrous results, mind you.

We love us some Wong around these parts. Filmmaker Freddie Wong is back at it again, this time directing a short about the coveted fire flower from the Super Mario Bros. series. Freddie’s done some incredible work in the past — including showing us what Mario would look like from the first person perspective, as well as directing a glorious ode to forklifts for EA Games and DICE’s official Battlefield 3 ad — and his latest video is no exception.

It’s one man on a journey of discovery that winds up being a little more than he can chew. OK, he can chew it, but it’s the spitting out part of the equation that’s tripping him up.

Give the hilarious video a watch below. And enjoy the slight Indiana Jones travel reference and the awesome eagle “caws.” They're a nice touch.
