TALENTVILLE — Move over, a cappella! There's a new music sensation taking over the internet.

YouTuber Mr. Cookies showcases a pretty unusual talent in this video, and it's surprisingly cool. Using only a desk lamp, a pen and a bit of foot tapping, Mr. Cookies performs a rendition of "Sandstorm," a musical composition by Finnish DJ Darude that you'll definitely recognize if you attended any dance parties in the early 2000s.

When I saw the name of the video, I thought, "sure, I too have tapped out a simple beat with a pen on a slow afternoon." But rest assured, this video is way cooler than anything I can absentmindedly accomplish while avoiding whatever I'm supposed to be working on.

It's one of those delightful and weird videos that makes you glad the internet exists, if only so you can see what creative people turn their boredom into. Watch it and be amazed by the level of talent, and also patience, that goes into creating weird internet stuff.
