8-Bit Trip

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qsWFFuYZYI&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]
Swedish musicians Daniel Larsson (music) and Thomas Redigh (animation) succeed in creating the world’s trippiest 8-Bit experience. The video description reads, 1500 hours of moving legobricks and take photos of them. To put that into perspective 1500 hours = 62.5 sleepless days. Raccoon-tailed Mario, Megaman, Puyo Pop, Tetris, Pong, and Karate masters (possibly from Karate Champ?), all make celebrity guest appearances.
