Watch this drummer 'beat' Super Mario Bros. 2

0

Both Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3 had incredible percussion and drum tracks for 8-bit NES games. If you're anything like me, I'm sure you were surprised and impressed when you heard the hand percussion in SMB2 or the timpani work in SMB3. Prepare to be even more impressed when you hear the score of Super Mario Bros. 2 set ablaze with a full trap set.

Drummer Andrea Vadrucci tears up Koji Kondo's score with some insane drum action in the above video. I've heard many a drum track to many a videogame tune, but this video still wows me. Sure, the double bass is excessive, but it's excessive in the best way -- the way that kicks your ass. My subwoofer just took a 15-minute coffee break after watching this.

Props to Destructoid community blogger AngelsDontBurn for the link.
