Hey there! I've been able to handle earthquakes more than fine since the 27/F, but my family was kinda scared. I was more worried about calming my mom (and the cat of course) but no major issues at all. Thanks so much for asking!

Charles Martinet is such an awesome person.
Super friendly, super happy, always willing to do his regular staple of voices when you just ask him to.

And now he's instantly the best at Instagram.

That's good to hear my mom freaked out too, been thinking of getting bottled water and flashlights in case the big one comes soon and fucks up the water and light yeah.....Martinet is pretty damn cool hopefully he won't get into trouble if he slips adult language when messing around.

If I see an old man playing with toys, and talking to them as if they were alive, I would look around the place to make sure his caretaker is nearby so he can get home safely.

I really hope Nintendo doesn't find some silly reason to force him off from there. Those clips are honestly some of the best marketing Nintendo's ever gotten, and he's probably not even being paid for them.

I've shared them with some friends who haven't owned a Nintendo console since the N64, and they find them hilarious.

Sorry to hear about your mom, but they tend to be sensitive about this stuff. I had to grab mine because she was really, really scary. It's a great idea to bottle some water and get some FL and batteries, if possible. Hopefully, we won't have the need of using them at all. Either way, please take care in case anything happens.

I can imagine Martinet in the middle of an earthquake going all "Mamma Mia" on people. It should not be an issue if he goes a bit "adult" on it's language but maybe Nintendo won't like that if he does on public.

He is. Marios life sucks, he has to look after his special needs brother, constantly rescue his halfwit girlfriend and the only people that are there to help are a bunch of inbred fungus.

Bowser, Kamek and the koopa kids are all more intelligent than team Mario and should easily be ruling over the land. The mushroom kingdom lore makes no sense.

And one of his more chilling performances is where he's voicing the antagonist in Shadow of Destiny/Memories, Homunculus.

That's pretty much how he got the role: ad libbing in the Mario voice for like 30 minutes.
