Listen: SUPER MARIO BROS. THEME played on ancient-ass instrument

ball so hard

Need proof that  Super Mario Bros. is a fixed, universal constant? That its signature tune is actually a direct wave-length that helps us attain Nirvana? In this next fucking video the theme is played on an Old as Fuck Instrument (that’s actually the name, don’t question me, question the translator) and it sounds goddamn stellar.

A video from YouTube user nsofilm features a musical tribute to Super Mario Bros.played on an ancient Chinese instrument known as the sheng.

The sheng is a reed instrument dating back as far as 1100 BC. By blowing air into the sheng, musicians can manipulate the sound by moving their fingers across the instrument.

Using the sheng, a musician is able to recreate the iconic theme song, as well as sound effects from Super Mario Bros., with incredible accuracy. Check out the video above to see it in action.
