Chinese Folk Musician Kills It Performing “Super Mario Bros” Theme


Are you tired from a long week at work? This video will put a smile on your face. 

In a video published on YouTube earlier this week, Chinese folk musician Xu Linlin from the China National Opera and Dance Drama Theater performs one of the world’s most recognizable tunes — the Super Mario Bros theme song. 

The music video is particularly interesting because the song is performed on a ruan, a traditional plucked string instrument from China. 

We tip our hats to Xu! But could we suggest The Legend of Zelda theme next?
