Marshmello and 24 players play 'Happier' on a piano in Fortnite.

There's no question about it. Marshmello is Fortnite's favorite DJ. The masked man played an in-game concert earlier this month, and since then, his online social engagement and demand for real-life concert tickets have exploded. He's tapped into the audience of one of the world's most popular video games, and the Fornite community is still showing him love with a cover of his Bastille collaboration "Happier."

A team of 24 players, led by user UMadBroYolo, synchronized their movements to cover Marshmello's biggest hit. The main melody is played on one of the giant floor pianos in the game map. The beat and extra textures are created using gun shots, fire pits, jumps and other in-game commands.

It's quite impressive an achievement, and game players will certainly find it entertaining.

"Happier" peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100 in November of 2018. Watch the fan-made Fortnite cover of "Happier" below.
