Here’s Donkey Kong as you’ve never seen him before—recreated entirely with perler beads.
YouTube user Guiz de Pessemier is the man behind the faithful recreation: His stop-motion video of the 1981 classic game is a near-perfect reconstruction, complete with three levels of "Jumpman" action. Creating the video required hundreds of perler beads, plenty of photos, lots of patience, and one crisp black bed sheet.
Take a look:
I guess the benefit of ‘playing’ a game stop-motion style is that you really can ace it. I was never as good as Guiz is at downing the kidnapping Kong.
