'The Sound Of Music' In 8-Bit Is The Biggest Makeover To The Classic Musical Since 'Sound Of Music Live!' — VIDEO
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens have never looked so pixelated. In Mashable 's 8-bit version of The Sound of Music , the 1965 classic gets a totally '80s makeover in honor of the film's 50th anniversary on March 2. In the video, songs like "My Favorite Things," "Do-Re-Mi," and, of course, "The Sound of Music" get a face lift, showing Maria and the von Trapp children bobbing their heads during a thunder storm, riding their bikes around town while wearing old curtains, and escaping to Switzerland with the Captain. Though "Edelweiss" doesn't get an '80s rendition, you can hum the synthesized chiptune slowly to yourself as you watch.
In addition to this version of The Sound of Music, we were also recently treated to Lady Gaga's take on the classic musical at the Oscars in February. That performance was much more well-received than The Sound of Music Live! on NBC last December with Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer, but this awesome 8-bit video takes the cake for being the most unique and fun. Maybe for the 100th anniversary someone can turn the entire movie into 8-bit game, because what's more fun than singing, dancing, and escaping Nazis with your family?
