I think the suggestion here is that 8-bit gaming is now considered very cool. This video combines violins, with an old pop cover and some Scott Pilgrim style 8-bit battles. If you really like the music then you can scoop it up from iTunes as a single.
If you’re like me you’ll not notice the title “Maniac”, forget which song that could possibly be and then suddenly laugh when the lyrics cut in… still worth a watch, though!
You can also follow Eric Speed on Twitter. Looks like he doesn’t use it very often but that just means your audience competition is much lower.
