Mario vs. Dr. Robotnik in Battle of the Mustaches

Who has a better mustache, Mario or Dr. Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik? That’s the premise of a funny new, boxing-style poster that Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog marketing team posted on Twitter today. “Golden Rings Promotions presents The Stache Clash. It’s time to settle the true rivalry,” reads a line from the poster.

Even funnier is the fact that Nintendo actually responded with its own witty comment.

The funny tweets coincide with the annual Movember campaign, which runs every November and challenges men to grow a mustache for the duration of the month to help raise money for men’s health. The Movemeber Foundation, the campaign’s organizing body, even released a mobile game inspired by the cause in which you run through mustache-themed worlds.

Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog marketing team is on a roll. Before this, they incorporated actor Shia Labeouf’s motivational speech into a funny video for Sonic Generations.

Let us know who you think has a better mustache in the comments below.
