New Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser had his first major appearance on the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct this past week. Nintendo couldn’t help but play up his last name, which meant bringing the video game character into the equation.

During the latest episode of the Nintendo Power podcast, Nintendo’s executive shared an inside story about filming for the presentation. He said the following:

“That was a lot of fun. Just a little inside story, as we were filming that, obviously we didn’t have a CG Bowser in the room – we had someone in a blue suit with a big pole coming out of the top of his head and a piece of tape really high up, and those were meant to be Bowser’s eyes. As we were obviously engaging with that particular person, we were supposed to be looking up at the eyes. I can’t tell you how many takes we had to do, because I kept staring at the actual eyes of the actor instead of way up to Bowser’s eyes. I basically kept talking to Bowser’s chest.”
