While waiting for some more insightful course designs of mine, I thought I’d rec some YouTube channels/vids that involve Super Mario Maker. The channels I’ve picked are all different in many ways, and picking your favorite comes down to what you find entertaining. (I watch everything by UberHaxorNova and WhiteHawke.)
I’ve probably missed a few channels, so I’ll come back and add them once I realize it.
And because the entire gaming industry on YouTube seems to have played the infamous and vexing level Companion Spring*, made by Ross (RubberRoss) from Game Grumps, I’m including it as a measuring stick as you look for your favorite YouTuber.

UberHaxorNova – ”I just want to rip my own Goddamn nose off.”
(In the sequel, James hits himself in the eye with the controller. Hilarity ensued.)
…aaand if you’re in a hurry, here’s a compilation made by Velma Hamilton:

Okay, I couldn’t find any Spring vids from the following people – they might have played the level and I just missed it.
And no, PewDiePie hasn’t made any Mario-related stuff worth mentioning that I know of.
Bonus: here’s one of the videos from The Creatures’ 2015 24 Hour Charity LiveSCREAM highlights (they raised money for the Colorado charity There With Care, and as they reached different amounts of donations, they all had to complete various tasks).
As they reached the milestone of $16,000, Dex had to eat a spoonful of mayonnaise each time he died while playing Super Mario Maker. (At around 3:40, you can spot the moment when Joe realizes the expiration date of the mayo.)
*I beat Companion Spring in three tries, all thanks to watching about a million videos about it before I made an attempt…
