Italians who can't pay their utility bills are getting help from an unlikely source: Super Mario.

Wearing Mario masks and blue overalls, a group of vigilante plumbers from Rome have been turning the water back on in homes after utility companies turn it off.

They are fighting for underemployed citizens' "right to water" and investigate each case before deciding to take action, according to Vocativ.

About 25 percent of homes are late on payments, and they reportedly get about 200 requests a day.

From Extra Fabulous Comics:
Toad later overdosed on sleeping pills in the quiet of his home. Mario was last seen by Wario, who stated, "He just came and sat at the edge of my bed in the middle of the night, I awoke to him drunkenly sobbing about it all being a joke. He said 'Mia forgive me', left, and I never saw him again." Princess Peach hasn't talked since the incident, and has shirked her duties as ruler as well, opting to be alone in her highest tower. Bowser has declared a respite from his war on the mushroom kingdom.
