Destiny player solos Crota on a Rock Band drum kit, and it's the best

Holy hell

The video above shows a Destiny player soloing the Crota boss fight on a Rock Band drum kit. It's even more entertaining than it sounds.

Keep in mind that not only do you have to use the drum pads for many of the button presses, you have to keep your hand on the middle of the drum kit to use the directional pad to move the character. That is a strange way to keep your hands while you're playing, and you can see how much he has to adjust what his hands are doing throughout this run.

Plus, I mean. He's using wooden spoons. I guess regular drum sticks would have made it too easy?

This is a purely gimmick run, and I feel a bit silly talking about it, but it's so much fun to watch, and it had to have been a major challenge. The first comment on the video nails it, in fact: "Oryx is definitely even more pissed that somebody's killed his son with DRUMS."

The flourish as the player beats Crota is also a good time, so be sure to watch the whole thing. Our hats, such as they are, are off.
