|“||I LIVE IN A WORLD OF MULTICOLORED MARIOS ._.||”|
―SMG4's classic slogan
Luke Lerdwichagul (born: May 24, 1999), better known online as SMG4 // Glitch Productions (formerly just SMG4 and short for SuperMarioGlitchy4), is an Australian machinimist who makes machinimas based around the Super Mario characters. These machinimas also include characters from other video games or are made up entirely.
Lerdwichagul also owns an animation company named Glitch Productions (formerly known as Glitchy Boy) along with his older brother Kevin Lerdwichagul (born June 21, 1994). The company's productions are uploaded onto the SMG4 channel, including the YouTube original series Meta Runner.
Luke usually publishes a video every Saturday (Sunday in some time zones). While not the first to, he is currently the most subscribed Super Mario 64 Machinimist/blooper maker on YouTube, and the setting of most of his bloopers are either original SM64 maps and Garry's Mod maps.
Most of his recent animation comes from Garry's Mod. He frequently uses sound clips from internet stars such as Smosh and uses many YouTube Poop sound effects.
Some of his notable SM64 series include SSENMODNAR, Retarded64 (now known as R64), the normal Super Mario 64 Bloopers (renamed SMG4 after branding), If Mario was in...., and Guards N' Retards. In some of his videos, (most notably Christmas 2013: The 12 idiots of Christmas) he voices by himself and with assorted voices from people on YouTube and his sister.
A lot of his humor is based around ridiculous humor, spaghetti, internet humor, rage comics, drugs, and naked people. On July 12th, 2013, he made a channel named theawesomario, which is supposedly Mario's channel. This was announced in the video super mario 64 bloopers: YouTube mario?.
As of December 3rd, 2016, he started up a Gaming channel with his brother Kevin called "Hobo Bros."
Hobo Bros is Luke's gaming channel, where he plays games, and reacts to memes, with his older brother, Kevin Lerdwichagul. They mostly play Nintendo games, specifically Mario games, but they react to meme videos more often.
TheAwesomeMario, formerly theawesomario, is a channel that was supposedly owned by Mario. It is based on a video called "YouTube mario?". It was SMG4's second channel until it became inactive after its latest video "Boopkins and Bob: The New Years Resolution", making Hobo Bros SMG4's second channel.
As of today, the fate of the channel's future is currently unknown.
- Some YouTubers, such as Luigikid Gaming, PSINESS99, Charmx, and Viger the Magnemite react to SMG4's videos, although Luigikid and PSINESS don't react to all of SMG4's videos.
- Luke actually hates spaghetti.
- He is scared of Teletubbies.
- He spends most of his life indoors to avoid danger or rain and to make more bloopers.

- Luke has a younger brother named Max, who is only seen in SMG4 Theatre: Mr. Joey goes to the theatre.
- He grew up working at his parents' shop every day after school, along with Kevin.
