Pianist plays Sonic theme

We know, endless renditions of the insanely catchy, anthemic Super Mario Bros. theme get old. Mario on an 11-string bass; Mario a capella; Mario blindfolded. Doesn't Sega do what Nintendon't?

Behold, a video of the Sonic the Hedgehog theme being played on a piano! While the Sonic games are remembered fondly by gamers everywhere, let it be known the theme doesn't translate to piano as well as, say... the Mario theme. It's not even clear if this guy is doing it blindfolded! That's the benchmark Sega fans gotta hit.

Make that surpass. Turns out "The Videogame Pianist" (that's the blindfolded dude) has already done Sonic; we can only presume he was blindfolded.
