And the bench is a freaking controller!
Composer and pianist Sonya Belousova and producer and director Tom Grey are the pair that make up Player:Piano, and have released videos ranging from the Game of Thrones theme to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.
The newest video from the YouTube duo features Belousova perched upon an NES controller bench playing a Super Mario Bros. melody on an amazing custom built NES-styled piano. The thing even has A/V plugs. The video ends with Belousova hilariously blowing off the keys (disclaimer: seriously, though, do NOT blow on your consoles or cartridges).
If watching the performance wasn’t enough for you, you can always subscribe to the Player:Piano YouTube channel for a chance to win the piano, which will be given away when the channel reaches one million subscribers.
The video was dedicated to Satoru Iwata, president and CEO of Nintendo who passed away earlier this month from a growth in his bile duct.
You can see some amazing close up shots of the piano and bench in the teaser trailer and gallery below.
