The Extreme Minuet is "the world's fastest coin-toss orchestra of 43 people" performing one of Mozart's minuets in about 3 seconds, then played back at a much slower speed to hear the performance stretched to its usual length and speed.

Here's a video (YT) from Nike's newest Japanese ad campaign with DJ/musician Daito Manabe and friends remixing Also sprach Zarathustra—with shoes (and some help from Ableton Live). Daito Manabe's blog [in Japanese] offers some additional photos. (via Engadget)
"I can name that tune in 300 yards ..." Not for much longer, though. Honda prepared for an upcoming commercial by cutting grooves in a road in Lancaster, California. These grooves, if driven over at just the right speed and in just the right car (one guess!) should play something resembling the William Tell Overture. But once filming was done (and I'm sure the commerical will be as impeccably produced and successful as Honda's other ads), locals and tourists were left with the driver's equivalent of that huge floor keyboard in Big, with some drivers lining up to play over and over again. Result? The city will pave over the road today. But hey, we'll always have Anyang. And Japan (previously). And Denmark.
