But that was not the tetris song!
And why people were laughing -- i`d think it`s a normal reaction for people who are reminiscing about the games they forgot they played back in the day. Like Elevator Action, Dragon`s Lair... I remember playing them in the Arcade.
I think these guys did a pretty decent job in recreating the music from those video games. (Yep, definitely would have been cool to hear Bubble Bobble in there :P)
So to all you young ones who only recognize games like Tetris -- go get an emulator or something and try playing those other original games -- know your roots :)
You can also play these games on your PC with the MAME emulator.
If they`d included Bubble Bobble, this piece would`ve been absolute perfection.

If your talking about the one at the beginning at about :51 sec. into the video, it`s called Defender.

Those two are not random cartoons, they actual games called Dragon`s Lair, and Space Ace. And yes, that`s what game play looked like. Also the car game "Outrun" was an eight-bit game.
Nicely choreographed and entertaining… Wagner’s Ride of the Valkeries is one of my favorites.

Our time would have been better spent if you would just choke to death on a sandwich.
but then again i only knew tetris and space invaders.
Its amazing to me how many folks don`t GET this. Themes played by orchestra. Yes, an orchestra. Those big things with all the pretty instruments. The world of pop music has destroyed music as we know it. Weep for humanity.
And I only know that because I`ve played it on Donkey Kong 64 lol
