Watch this now: Super Mario Bros. theme on an ancient Chinese instrument

We're already flooding the site with a wave of MWC 2014 stories so we thought we'd break it a little with this Youtube clip. The Super Mario Bros. theme might be one of the most covered video game soundtracks in all of Youtube-dom but this particular clip is a definite must see. 

 

The instrument in question is a sheng, a Chinese instrument that dates back all the way to 1100 BC. What's amazing though is how accurate the sounds are played on this single instruments. We're not just talking about the melody here but also the coin and mushroom sounds. Don't believe it? They do say seeing is believing, so enjoy the clip.
