This 8-Bit Holiday video is sure to put video game fans in the festive mood. Featuring popular NES-era characters like Mega Man, Mario and Link, the quirky stop motion animation takes viewers on a journey as these playable avatars frolic about on Christmas night; all to a digital rendition of In the Hall of the Mountain King, of course.
The 8-Bit Holiday video is the brainchild of Andrew Jive, whose website hosts tons of similar stop motion videos. Jive is a talented director and animator and his work was recently featured in a Wendy's commercial. The music was arranged by Erik Snyder, though the original tune was obviously written by the late and great composer Edvard Grieg.
Jive's ability to replicate 8-bit characters using nothing but LEGO blocks is truly astounding. He really nailed the likeness of each video game hero.
