How the hell did he do this?

http://vimeo.com/13118504

Extract the maps, record a playthrough. Merge the two.
Record the characters position at various points (given that they didn't have a computer controlled rail-mounted camera they couldn't get that part perfect. You'll note that the camera doesn't follow mario perfectly).

Then you find a suitable location, calculate the length of the maps and note the positions where your character was at different points in time. Use that data to move the camera along from point to point, following the previously mentioned schedule.

The final part is merging the two through the use of fairly simple shape recognition software (recognize the shape upon which you're suppose to project the digital image. Pretty simple in this case). Tweak until you're satisfied.

Simple in theory, but requires a lot of work.

In other words, you've got to love Mario to do it!

What a nice artproject  Smiley Even with a natural explaination, it looks kind of magic.

Not really. If I was going to do a project like this I wouid probably pick Mario as well, and despite being a gaming freak Mario never really appealed to me.
I've finished pretty much all the old school mega man (and sonic and a dozen other plaformers) games, but I've never taken the original Mario beyond level 10-ish. I've never finished Super Mario World (although I've gotten to the star levels).

I'd pick it because it's recognizable (public appeal), the levels are fairly flat (unlike Sonic or Megaman which have a lot more lateral movement. A horizontal level layout makes it simpler for the face recognition software to fix the image upon the selected medium), low-detail background (cleaner projection) and bright/clean colors (again, cleaner projection).

Good thing I can't play the keyboard/piano. Or else my budget would take a pretty big hit. Because I want one...

Okkusenman, how I love that song. Yes, the tune is from Megaman 2, but not the lyrics. So nostalgic, the memories come back.

Now, for something totally different:

I can't believe how that dude sings! It's like, you don't have to follow the original melody note by note to make a good arrangement but he does it! Hysterical.

Something people refuse to believe is that the guy DOES know how to sing, it's just that in those parts, he sings like that on purpose. If you listen to other of his songs, you'll notice.

Another version of okkusenman:
