Andrew Huang uses colour-tracking music software to turn Leonardo DiCaprio into a tuba. Somewhere this makes complete sense.

We honestly didn't think that we'd be sharing a second ridiculous cover of the "Titanic" theme this soon; but YouTubers like Andrew Huang are always destined to surprise us. Especially when he has created his own version in the most unlikely, confusingly technical way.

Working once again with music technology wiz Jan Willem, Andrew uses colour detection technology to generate different music notes on a screen.

The obvious next step for this amazing tech is, of course, creating cutouts of Kate and Leo from "Titanic", and using them as light-detected shadow puppets that play both the flute and tuba respectively. The end result? A rusty yet heartfelt MIDI tribute to Celine Dion's Oscar-winning single, and a video titled "Leonardo DiCaprio is a tuba." This is the content we sign up for every day.
