PROVO — Utah County production company Dark Pixel is at it again, releasing a sequel to their 2013 viral video, ["Super Mario Brothers Parkour (In Real Life])."](

Dark Pixel, comprised of two brothers and one long-time friend (Casen Sperry, Landon Sperry and Mike Brown), have had a follow-up video to the original viewed 34 million times in the works for a while.

Casen said the video was filmed in August, using Parkour artists Calen Chan and Ronnie Shalvis, who Casen called "some of the best, most talented people I've ever had the pleasure of working with!"

Casen said that the creative crew learned during their last Mario Parkour project that the visual effects were a major use of time, so they recruited fellow YouTubers King Bob Videos for the undertaking.

"They do some great work, so we decided to give them a shot at a Mario Parkour sequel. They hit a home run," Casen said.

Dark Pixel directed, produced and filmed the video and utilized University of Utah and Utah Valley University campuses in the summer when they would be less populated and the risk of someone "accidentally stepping in the way or getting hurt" would be limited, Casen said.

With a Thursday release of "Super Mario Brothers Parkour 2 (In Real Life) - Mario Maker," you can now watch Shalvis and Chan flip and hop their way through the Utah locales, collecting coins, size up with mushrooms and stomp Koopa Troopas with relative ease.

The Dark Pixel crew just finished up a massive undertaking previously featured on Star Kart. The Star Wars/Mario Kart mash-up was a yearlong project released two weeks ago and has nearly eclipsed the magic million-view mark.
