"....made out of credit cards" and a bunch of other materials. Clever none-the-less.

Clever. But no running the magstripe data through an amp?

I'm surprised how disappointed I waas that this didn't suddenly turn into a cover of the FreeCreditReport.com song.

Pretty people doing things in a commercial.

Cool, yeah.

But that's what I'm seeing.

Look again. There is a dude scratching with a credit card and a magnetic reading head.

That was much better than it had any right to be. Visa Blue.

Repurposing as a musical instrument is pretty much the only thing your card is good for if you're a composer, unless you're selling out by acting some postafrican beat music "composition" in a commercial.

No one should ever take themselves that seriously while playing a shaker.

The best compliment I can give this is that I felt like it ended too soon.
