Having created legendary video game franchises like Mario and The Legend of Zelda as well as having a hand in the creation of numerous other critically-acclaimed Nintendo titles, Shigeru Miyamoto is a bonafide living legend of the video game industry. But while creating memorable games is his passion and day job, Miyamoto surprisingly prefers to spend his free time playing the guitar, and he recently showcased both his passion and favourite hobby on  "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon"!

Miyamoto appeared on the December 7 episode of the late night program to promote the upcoming release of Super Mario Run, but rather than do the usual sit down interview with Jimmy Fallon, the designer decided to do something way more memorable.

Appearing onstage with a guitar in hand, Miyamoto and the show's in-house band The Roots performed a cover of what may be the most famous video game tune ever - the "Super Mario Bros." theme song. 

Words can't describe just how awesome this performance was so we'll just let you all watch it right here:
