• Want to Hear the “Super Mario Bros.” Theme Performed Completely on Wine Glasses?

    Of course you do

    Are the “Super Mario Bros.” adventures great video games…or the GREATEST video games?

    One thing is for sure: America’s favorite team of sibling plumbers has one devoted–and extremely talented–fan-base. Case in point, the above video, in which super fan Dan Newbie has arranged 48 wine glasses full of water to perform the timeless theme song to the Nintendo adventure with the help of a pencil.

    And it’s actually not the only time something like this has been attempted, though the percussive frying pan is surely a first. Check out Rilig Ririlili’s similar 2012 performance on glasses using fingers ONLY:

    Music to my ears. I’m pretty sure no video game in the past 30 years has ever topped that theme.

    In related news, Newbie has been soliciting requests for other songs to perform on his wine glasses. What would you most like to hear? I’m thinking “Hooked on a Feeling” might yield a clever arrangement.
