Hotshot Brazilian jazz drummer Felipe Continentino maintains a YouTube channel and Facebook page, both of which showcase his sick skills on the skins, but what caught my ear last night was his rather freakish ability to improv in time to movie dialogue.
This is unreal.
Continentino “plays” the famous “You can’t handle the truth!” scene between Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise from A Few Good Men and absolutely NAILS IT:
Continentino has also uploaded a video of himself drumming to Publio Delgado’s guitar interpretation of the infamous “Jones Big Ass Storage” viral video.
Between Continentino and Delgado, it’s clear that there are some musicians out there operating on a much higher level, albeit with strange priorities, who make the rest of us fumbling with instruments look completely useless.
This is simultaneously incredible and dumb as shit, but, DUDE, go on with your bad self:
