Gaming Roots: Mario Theme Team-up on Fallon

That Fallon, tho.

Jimmy Fallon has become the Tonight Show host for the millenials. He pulls in music, pop culture, and geeky goodness at every turn. Be real, if The Roots were your house band you’d do the same. Last night, The Roots teamed up with the original game designer of Super Mario Bros., Shigeru Miyamoto, and brought geeks to their knees with their genuine rendition of the beloved theme.

This song is iconic to video gamers and geeks everywhere, and The Roots cum Miyamoto certainly did it justice. Fallon even jumped in to the fun, but you’ll have to watch the video for that.

What’s your favorite video game theme and cover?
