The 8-bit Yule Log does a 21st century update of the time-honored Christmas fire. While many tune in to standard December 25th programs that showcase the burning logs on a reel, this program adds digitized video game twists to the festive concept.

Music by Rush Coil is paired with this three minute-long montage. The soundtrack is what gives the 8-bit Yule Log its Super Mario characteristics, heard in the rapid beeps and clangs. Those who become acquainted with the tech tool will find the short film to be well-suited to holiday activity, be it cooking, present wrapping or after party cleaning, especially for older crowds who have maintained a passion for their favorite childhood Nintendo games.
