I am not a Halo fan boy, in fact I have never seen the the big draw of the game.
I have tried playing the game (first version) on the xbox and found it frustrating. First person shooters need to be played with a mouse.
Anyway, I found the new Halo commercial very good.
The music is Prelude in D-flat Major Op. 28 No. 15 – Raindrop by Frédéric Chopin, composed in the 1800s. I remember growing up with bugs bunny and how classical music was included into the cartoons, something kids theses days don’t get. So I am glad to see the commercial is so popular, it exposes kids to some very good classical music.
I hope I can get back to learning piano at some point, this is one piece I would really like to be able to play.
Here is a longer version of the music piece.
