Musicians Gypsy Joe Trane (@gypsyjoetrane) playing the theme to Super Mario Brothers while traveling uptown on the R. I can’t believe that no one else was as amused as I was.

This was one of the most entertaining rides I’ve had on the R. I like subway performers and these guys had the best approach I’ve seen: just stand and jam for many stops. I don’t know if they made more or less money than those who do a quick set before hopping into another car, but I gave them a few bucks for the great accompaniment. 

Thanks to Kotaku for reblogging this and giving these musicians some well-deserved (virtual) applause.
