  Des's moustache launches new Mario game
Updated 04 October 2002, 18.36
Des and Mario are now partners in face hair!
Think of two famous people with moustaches, and you'll probably think of Des Lynam and Super Mario.

Well, maybe not, but the certainly both have impressive facial fuzz.

Nintendo noticed this, and to mark the launch of their new GameCube game, Super Mario Sunshine, they got Des to support them.

Des said: "I'm pleased the true worth of my moustache has finally been realised. It's something I've worn despite what fashions have come and gone."

To match the GameCube, Des has dyed his tash purple, and had it insured against damage and loss.
