From Software's Dark Souls is one of gaming's most rewarding - and brutal - experiences. For many, the game - as well as its forerunner Demon's Souls and sequel Dark Souls II - is hard-as-nails when played normally, but there's a small subset of completely insane players who feel it isn't quite punishing enough.

Twitch and YouTube user bearzly is one of those individuals. Not content with the difficulty curve of Dark Souls, he's taken to playing the game not with a standard controller, but with a pair of Donkey Konga Bongos, originally released for Nintendo's GameCube many years ago.

Just in case you think this all sounds too good to be true, you can watch bearzly use the unlikely peripheral to take on what many consider to be one of the game's toughest encounters - the boss fight against Ornstein and Smough - in the video below.

Whatever will people think of next? Taking on Dark Souls with a Rock Band controller? Nope, that's been done already.
