“Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die”, performed by Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg, was set to debut on 4/20. In celebration of this counterculture holiday, we were given just one task. Come up with a cool way to debut this song.

To pay tribute to these two legends and patron saints of 420, we kept it simple. We created a one track music player in the form of a burning joint. The longer the song played, the more it burned and the smokier things got.

Powered by the SoundCloud API and a good deal of inspiration, the single track player relies on a series of animations to mimic the burn-down. Quite possibly the best E&E joint yet.
