Tired of ‘Get Lucky’? You haven’t heard the Mario Paint remix

Someone was apparently up all night getting their copy of Mario Paint up and running.

Just when you thought you’d heard every possible version of Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky,” some genius managed to completely transform the track into a chiptune banger. 

YouTube user jeonghoon95 resurrected 1992’s Mario Paint—an oft-overlooked game that allowed users to not only make pixelated stamps with a custom mouse—to turn looping animations into a chirpy beat. 

The video of the cover reached the top of Reddit’s r/videos forum Monday night and has since collected more than 484,000 views.

“My wife was in the other room. First, she asks, ‘Daft Punk?'” djtoell commented. “A few seconds later she asks, ‘Mario Brothers?!'”

“Daft Brothers,” tashre responded.

Since “Get Lucky” was released in April, its collected a piano cover, an Alan Partridge mashup, and inspired some college kids to frolic around in their underwear for an amateur music video.
