You know how there are inherently funny words? I think this is the discovery of an inherently funny camera technique.

For the record this is not some random guy fooling around in his living room (okay, it kind of still is) but rather David Finlayson, second trombone with the NY Philharmonic.

I don't care who he is. I will be seeing that in my nightmares.

Beats the hell out of more seagull videos.

Well played. Can't wait to see/hear the FIRST trombonist' response.

This is the porniest video I've ever seen involving an older man and a trombone.

Thanks, range. I thought it was Larry David in Curb Your Enthusiasm. When I read David Finlayson in the YouTube profile, I thought it had something to do with the series finale.

The combination of a Trombone and a Gopro produces something fantastic.

Yeah, motion sickness.

My obsessive-compulsive disorder compels me to extend your words with the following quote:

"...but that was not one of them."

This made my inner ears very unhappy. Excuse me while I go stare at the horizon for a while.

After a while I looked away from the funny close-ups to better appreciate the way HE WAS PLAYING HIS ASS OFF! What a beautiful, performance of a nice piece of music.

Now I know why babies laugh when you bring them close to your face! It's funny!

SOMEONE LET ME OFF THIS CRAZY RIDE SLIDE!

Jesus Christ, I laughed so hard at this. I am pretty sick right now and laughing hurts but I don't care. It was worth it. Even if some of the fits of laughter became fits of coughter.

Yeah, don't ever Google "rusty trombone".

That's great!

I'm really liking the different ways people are using these kinds of cameras because as a dedicated couch potato, I'd look the extreme skiing/surfing/skating/biking GoPro videos and think, "Well, that's neat but I'm sure as hell am not going to try that so I don't have any use for this camera."

Then along came this GoPro cat video ad and the trombone video which have given me a giant case of new camera lust.

Man, I want one of those cameras.

Thanks, now there's wine all over my keyboard.

These tiny cameras can sure create some unusual points of view. For instance, those hula hoop videos from last summer.

It's like the younger brother of SnorriCam.

The original upload was a rip from his website here where it's still available. Perhaps the mods would care to change the link?
