This Beatboxer Has Clearly Played A Lot of Mario Games

Posted by Zach Kaplan

Japanese musician performs some impressive beat-coin-boxing

We've seen some interesting 8-bit musical adaptations before, but Japanese beatboxer Hikakin has done the reverse, emulating classic Mushroom Kingdom melodies with nothing more than his mouth / throat combination. It's Rahzel meets Miyamoto in this incredibly impressive display of vocal virtuosity.

Check out his recently posted video and marvel at this unplugged sound sensation.

He is a good beatboxer, but to be honest, the lead parts of the tunes sound just wierd.

@Klapaucius & Gabe Greens: Ace Attorney I didn't know we had any celebrities on our message boards! Ladies and gentlemen, Simon Cowell & Simon Cowell.

Equal parts the most brilliant and hilarious thing I've heard all day.

Rahzel's a clown imo. So many better names out there.

"I'm on a Twix commercial and I have horribly disfigured teeth! I deserve to be famous covering other people's work!"



Zach said:

@Swerd_Murd And what of "If Your Mother Only Knew"? I don't know whether or not it's a cover, but have you heard his version? Or his newer version, which you can see on YouTube? Nice.
