Someone has painstakingly synchronised a game of Line Rider with Tchaikovsky’s magical melody from The Nutcracker, and it’s unbelievably satisfying.

The video, created by YouTuber DoodleChaos, brings together ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’ from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, with Line Rider, an internet game in which Bosh, a little boy on a sledge, rides on lines created with your mouse.

Every moment and every bit of orchestration is represented by three Boshes, who ride the lines in perfect synchronisation with the ballet theme. It’s super-satisfying to watch.

DoodleChaos went crazy-viral last year when he released a video of Line Rider set to Grieg’s ‘In The Hall of the Mountain King’, racking up 6.3 million views on YouTube. Watch it here!
