JEOPARDY! contestant Jared Watson has rocked fans with an on-the-money rendition of the game show’s theme music.
The two-day champion shared an at-home video of himself absolutely shredding the famous tune.
Jared, a quality control specialist from Greenville, Texas, will go for win three on Monday having amassed $38,000 so far.
In the meantime, he flexed a talent aside from his Jeopardy! prowess.
He titled a Reddit internet post: “A big (and musical) thank you.”
“Huge thanks to my son Eric for being my camera operator.”
“Anybody that really knows me knows that I was not going to pass up an opportunity to inject some music into this and celebrate the moment.
“Enjoy my rendition of the Jeopardy! theme!”
In the accompanying video [seen above], Jared spliced together footage of him playing multiple guitar lines, drums, and bass.
The result was an impeccable extended and harder-rocking version of the “Think” music from Final Jeopardy, known by viewers and stressed contestants all too well.

Fans were impressed since Jared went to great lengths to get his rendition down to a T.
One fan replied: “This is awesome. And congrats on being a champion!”
“Great work Jared!” wrote another.
“I love the sly nod to the Art Fleming version theme that you slid in there!” wrote a third.
“What is “Badass multi-instrument shredder?” Seriously, this is super creative and well-executed,” wrote a fourth.
Jared isn’t the only Jeopardy! jammer as beloved Masters contestant Sam Buttrey makes comedy songs on the side.
‘AT NO POINT DID I THINK I’D WIN’
Jared’s first win on last Thursday’s episode was quite a rollercoaster as he went into the last round in second place.
However, he was correct on Final Jeopardy! while Eva in first place wasn’t- he looked absolutely stunned being declared the new winner.
Final Jeopardy! Under “Country Names” read: “The first current country to include its particular religion in its full name, it also has that religion in the name of its capital.”
When Mayim Bialik, 47, (who shares host duties with Ken Jennings) revealed he had correctly written down “Pakistan” the energy in the room palpably shifted.
She declared: “Jared, you’re our new Jeopardy! champion!.”
Jared buckled over his podium looking absolutely thrilled over the come-from-behind win.
“Oh man!” he said, and Mayim replied: “Oh man is right!”
As the credits rolled Jared said to the host in a made-for-TV moment: “I can’t words right now.”
Jared wrote to Reddit: “What a barnburner of a game. Even knowing how it eventually would end up, it was SO stressful to re-watch.
“At no point in the game did I think I was actually going to win.”
He then won Friday’s game with a solid $24K.
30 SECONDS WORTH $80 MILLION
Merv Griffin, the creator of Jeopardy! (and Wheel of Fortune), composed the well-known “Think” music.
He adapted it from “A Time for Tony”, which is a song he wrote as a lullaby for his son.
Little did he know at the time that the song he wrote would become world-famous and make him ultra-rich.
The tune has been in place since the show first debuted in 1964, and it is rumored to have taken Merv less than a minute to write.
Now, the theoretically sweet serenade is synonymous with intense high-pressure situations.
“That little 30 seconds has made me a fortune, millions,” he told The New York Times in a 2005 interview on his ridiculous royalties.
“Probably close to $70-80 million,” Merv, who passed away in 2007 at the age of 82- admitted.
