HELP: Super Gypsy Public Mario Radio Swing Bros.

I was listening to NPR while getting ready for work on Friday, and as a bit of interstitial music, the station played a lovely gypsy guitar rendition of the Super Mario Bros. theme. My girlfriend and I danced around the room for the duration. I searched for it online, but the only version of the theme on the NPR site is another one entirely. Can anyone help me find this awesome gypsy swing-style rendition, or lead me to other game music performed in the same style?

    Here's one that should be similar, but it's the Super Mario Bros. 2 theme: http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01466/

    edit: here's a youtube video of the same guy playing the SMB1 theme. Somewhat different style, though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAkmOjeIVig

    Might have been "Super Buck II" by Estradasphere:

    It's not the estradasphere. The version I heard only had the Gypsy guitar. Like Django Reinhardt. (Not Jango Fett.)

    Does it have any other instruments? Are you sure it's the SMB1 main theme? Does it have lyrics or any sound effects?

    I hear this too. I was trying to find it on NPR's web page, but no luck.

    Is this it? Its the same guy from Billman's post, but a different style. Looks like hes accompanying himself.

    That sounds like it might be the same guy, actually.

    But OP was right, NPR played SMB1
