- Not to be confused with A Secret Course - Super Mario Sunshine (GiIvaSunner), an earlier rip this one is based on
"A Secret Course - Super Mario Sunshine" is a high quality rip of "A Secret Course" from Super Mario Sunshine.
Instead of the remix of "Ground Theme" from Super Mario Bros., the choirs hum the song "All Star" by Smash Mouth.
This rip is actually based on an older rip, A Secret Course - Super Mario Sunshine (GiIvaSunner), which was uploaded on the original GiIvaSunner channel on January 14, 2016. There were a few subtle differences between A Secret Course - Super Mario Sunshine (GiIvaSunner) and this rip: in the former, instead of a "finger snapping" instrument there was a louder "percussion" instrument, and the "All that glitters is gold / Only shooting stars break the mold" part was performed the same way as the rest of the rip, instead of a sole "bass" instrument. That rip hasn't been officially reuploaded since the channel's termination.
This rip was originally uploaded on the GiIvaSunner channel on January 15, 2016 under the title A Secret Course (High Quality) - Super Mario Sunshine. In the "Music:" line of the video description, it was called "A Secret Course (High Quality Version)". As is obvious from that title, this rip was presented as an updated version of A Secret Course - Super Mario Sunshine (GiIvaSunner). Both rips coexisted until the channel's termination.
Both A Secret Course - Super Mario Sunshine (GiIvaSunner) and this rip originally featured a background image change. In both rips, at 0:07 the background logo changed to "Onions Make You Cry 3", a Shrek-themed Far Cry 3 parody artwork created by Matbox99 of DeviantArt. When this rip was reuploaded on SiIvaGunner's channel on May 1, 2016, it didn't feature the background image change anymore. The reupload is also 1 second shorter than the GiIvaSunner version.
- This is the first rip that's based on a previously uploaded rip.
