Take a Look at Super Mario Bros. Recreated in an Excel Spreadsheet
"Fun" is not an adjective most people would use to describe Microsoft Excel, but one creative spreadsheet-maker managed to find entertainment value in the work tool. The anonymous user recreated a level from the classic Super Mario Bros. video game in stop-motion.
The minute-long demo video above is made up of more than 1000 pictures with the timestamps in the bottom right-hand corner rapidly shifting from day to day over the course of about a month. As the blocky Mario breaks bricks and shoots fireballs on his journey to slide down a flag pole, viewers hear sounds that resemble those from the beloved game. Check out the wonderfully geeky project above (though you probably shouldn't try to replicate it while at work).
