This A Capella Cover of the Fall Guys Theme Song Is Very Good

Losing in Fall Guys is the absolute worst, especially when you’re very close to winning a match for the first time ever and some loser decides to pull you over the edge for no apparent reason. Sorry, I still have yet to win a crown and I blame the Yellow Team.

But the one good thing about losing is that you get to listen to the insanely good theme song while you’re waiting for the next match to load up and someone has made their own version of it.

Fall Guys player, actor, musician, and streamer, Elspeth Eastman, went out of her way to create her very own a capella beatbox cover of the Fall Guys theme song and the result is something truly catchy.
