Mario Theme: One-Hand Me, Good Sir!

Here's a virtuoso piano performance of the Super Mario Bros. theme - using one hand. If I'd remembered anything from my piano lessons beyond playing Old MacDonald on the black keys, I could probably describe how difficult this is.

A commenter asks "Was that one hand for left AND right hand, or was it just a really intense right hand part?" and the artist, RigorMortis999 replies, "the former becoming the latter."

Good thing Mario didn't run down to his final 100 seconds at the end.

Wow, ~23 seconds in it's really obvious how fake it is (that and the sound quality is just ridiculously uber for something homemade......) There's some half-notes or something that he's not even playing that appear in the music, fail.

Edit: Okay, the mistakes you can hear towards the end make me believe otherwise........ but I'm still a little bit suspicious..............
