This is far from the first video game/keyboard cat mash-up -- or the first Mario/keyboard cat remix for that matter -- but his one adds new life to the tired meme by recreating the famous t-shirt-wearing feline as an 8-bit figure, thanks to the talents of artist Jude Buffum, who we've previously featured for his video game works.

Also impressive, the music was composed as an 8-bit tune by famed micromusician Doctor Octoroc, the artist behind the fabulous 8-bit Jesus, "an album of classic Christmas songs arranged in the style of classic videogames for the Nintendo Entertainment system".
