Smarmy Guy Finger-Snapping Super Mario Bros Theme

finger-snapping-mario-bros-theme.jpg

This is a video of a guy finger-snapping the Super Mario Bros theme. He does a great job. Man, some of the facial expressions he makes though. He reminds me of my friend Brian. Brian is that friend you can't help but want to punch all the time. This guy looks a little too proud of himself. You finger-snapped a video game theme song homie, you didn't cure cancer. I don't make the whole restaurant cheer when I REALLY eat all I can at the All U Can Eat Buffet. Psyche, yes I do too! Everybody together now -- GEE DOUBLE U, GEE DOUBLE U! Heck yeah, I am the king! I think I might even go back for another round! *pukes under the salad bar glass* K, maybe just the check.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to X, who has probably spent months less time signing his name than I have.

  • Terry O'Brien

    first of all the comment below me was weird, second, i bet i could that if i memorized the song

  • ManMan

    I don't see why he's so happy about never having sex in his life.

  • Looks like a "Dave"

    Maybe the rug is for acoustic reasons, such as to muffle echoes from the snaps.
    He looks okay to me, maybe a little skinny. He reminds me of someone, but I can't think who.

  • Major Lee Gassole

    What a bag of douche. Oh yeah... nice Dane Cook "Brian" reference. ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?... (roughly 1:40 for Brian reference)

  • Alberto J. Merinos S├ínchez

  • Jared Gonzales

    I've had a few friend's named Brain growing up. I hated the ones who spell it Brayn, though.

  • Gprime

    ... Hey ! There's a rug on your wall man ....

  • dougfunnay

    but but..... its so beautiful..... its a piece of art man and it needs to be on display to the world!
    the floral pattern is a metaphor for life man! you cant just let people walk all over that shit
    gotta think deeper bro
    i bet you dont even know why i fill my ears with toothpaste at night (its to clean my ears after they have been sullied by all the dirty words of the world..... words come from mouths....... toothpaste cleans teeth..... teeth are in mouths)
    or why wear leggings made from orange peels durring the summer.
    pffff plebe

  • Gprime

    Wow man ... you are like my after Easter Jesus.
    From finger snapping to reality, that's deep.

  • FearlessFarris

    Get a haircut, bro.

  • Reminds me of watching once of those musicians who is so wrapped up in their music, they don't realize what they look like. Sometimes they look constipated, extremely smug, or like they're about to sneeze.

    Thing is, they have a skill that is far beyond any skill I have, so the only thing I can do is poke fun at their facial expressions. Stupid faces.

    I hate them and their ridiculous talent.

  • dougfunnay

    not seeing anything especially talented.... as i see it pretty much anyone could do this just as well if they practiced for a few days or a week.... but why?
    kinda cool for a second or two but not even close to worth the time that was wasted on it and there was nothing particularly skilled about the performance.... kinda find it hard to appreciate that for anything other than what it is (a brief novelty that will attract viewers simply due to the subject matter)

    several things I disagree with here.

    first, I don't think you could learn that in a couple weeks. I just tried it and I can't even figure out how to change the pitch of my snaps, let alone do an entire song. I'd have to agree with Taylor that you're severely underestimating the talent it would take to be able to do this.

    second, you seem to think that this skill was acquired through long, wasted hours of practice. not only does that slightly contradict what you said regarding how long it would take to learn, but I don't think that's an accurate assumption. I've learned to beatbox really well, to the point where strangers at college will stop me because someone told them I can beatbox really well and they want to hear it. I've never had a 'practice session' or anything. instead of singing in the shower, sometimes I beatbox. if I forget my music in the car, or I'm waiting for something, or I'm walking around, I might absentmindedly do it. that's how I got good, not through deliberate practice. this was probably a similar scenario. he probably just fit it into the blank spaces in his life.

    lastly, you seem to think that you're better for not wasting your time on such useless pursuits. the first point that I'd like to make is that you are arguing with strangers on the internet, trying to convince them that another stranger's hobby is stupid. if that's not a huge waste of time, I don't know what is. that also implies that you browse the internet fairly regularly. I know at least geekologie is not a particularly 'educational' blog, and if the rest of your internet fare is the same, your time online is as much, if not more, of a waste than when this dude's 'practicing' his hobby. I mean, we all waste time in one form or another.

    to conclude: it absolutely is a difficult talent, I doubt he really wasted much time at all learning it, and just by engaging this argument you've shown that we all waste time on things, and this guy's no different.

  • dougfunnay

    its not a difficult talent you change the pitch by changing angle and speed (i just figured that out in about 30 seconds.... youre a retard)
    i enjoy spending a few minutes a day commenting so its not wasted time (i did not enjoy watching that video and i do not enjoy snapping my fingers for hours on end)
    and yes it is easy to master and no hours of practice for a few days or a week is not a terribly long time to master anything (but it is still a lot of time to waste)

    this guy was a douche nozzle cashing in on the fact that mario has become nostalgia popular and figured he could get some quick internet fame by doing something completely novel but that a lot of people hadnt seen yet ......this was stupid..... and if the subject matter was different (ie. something that does not have a weird cult following) it would not have gotten nearly the attention it did

    but hey its mario so its awesome because well.... mario! i remember that game!
    now if youll excuse me i have to get back to recreating the game of thrones theme with armpit farts

  • Codongolev

    haha ok

  • Codongolev

    I know I wasted a ton of time writing this, but I'm hoping that it at least keeps someone from being judgmental.

  • backwardsbread

    Doug funnay you're dumb as fuck. You just used "douche-nozzle".

    And used it because someones was having fun not being a douche in the slightest. So..
