ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Video Link to a short feature on the very popular "human sound machine" Hikakin, who has a growing following within and beyond his native Japan. His YouTube channel is here, and well worth a subscribe. Below, his take on the Donkey Kong theme song.
It’s never the sounds they make that impress me; but the ability to make so many at once. Although I assume it’s mostly clever timing and there probably aren’t too many simultaneous noises, but it just doesn’t compute in my hearing-brain-bit.

Aren’t all beatboxers human by definition?
He’s good, but it’s hard to be better than Beardyman:
That’s dope! I saw this guy, Kenny Muhammed, open for the X-ecutioners dj crew a ways back. also good. this is him with the NY philharmonic, of all things: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jD_SEnNq_qE&feature=related
I’ve seen better. Seriously. I’ve seen better.
