After some terrible losses in the entertainment world this week, we could all use a little pick-me-up.

This has been a pretty rough week, what with back-to-back losses of one of the most versatile musicians of our time and an amazingly talented actor who brought some of our favorite characters to life. We remember them with heavy hearts, but as they used their talents to bring happiness to their fans, we can be sure they would want us all to face forward and continue on with a smile.

Still, sometimes a little help is needed to bring back the laughter, which is what we at RocketNews24 are here for! Us, and this talented Taiko Drum Master player, whose knack for the drumming simulation game as well as his quirky, crazy moves makes for entertainment gold that are sure to turn those frowns upside down.

We will forgive the filmer of this video for committing the ultimate sin of recording vertically, because we would rather it exist in vertical form than not exist at all. If you’ve ever attempted the game, called Taiko no Tatsujin in Japanese, you know how insanely difficult some of the songs can be to play in their “expert” mode, but this guy not only seems to be keeping up with the beat, but somehow manages to throw in some wonderfully-timed spins, headbanging, and booty shaking too.

Mister drum master man, wherever you are, thank you for sharing your craziness with the world!
