Finlandia Hymn on 4 Electric Toothbrushes A Finnish fellow makes music with various appliances and equipment: "I turn different devices into instruments and I make them play music together. So far I've mostly played electronic toothbrushes and credit card machines but there's more to come!" posted by condesita (12 comments total) 13 users marked this as a favorite
OMG the vibrating googly eyes. I hurt from giggling.

The US National Anthem on seven credit card machines is simply brilliant.

I'm not sure if I'd ever heard the Finlandia Hymn before, but my associations with Finland now include those Googly eyed toothbrushes.

Finlandia is one of my favorite tunes of all times, and I heart this so much.

Cool. Reminds me that last week I walked past 4 kids doing the Imperial March on kazoos.

This has a very similar hilarity/grandeur profile to Mahler 5 played on a rubber chicken.
