Weekend Funny – pvc and duct tape bagpipes

I am in equal parts fascinated and appalled.

Part of me wants to race into the shed and make a set, but I’m also aware of another part that would throw rocks at anyone who tried playing this anywhere near me.

At the 2012 Edinburgh Tattoo the massed pipes performed the best version of Highland Cathedral I have ever heard, unfortunately the best I could find was this a slightly dodgy recording.

If it doesn’t send tingles up your spine then you don’t have a pulse.
