More weirdness from the WU archive:
Dying pigs’ squeal used to sell pianos, 1907
The Husband Detector, 1947
Gianangelli's metal bathing suits, aka "lunar fashion" — 1968
The Good The Bad And The Ugly comes right to mind. Pretty neat.

Great stuff! I enjoy watching people who excel at their talents to the point where they can poke fun at it in style! I really liked the Theremin at the 8min mark.

There is a reason it reminds you of "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly". The opening is the theme from it; "El Condor Pasa".
Whether intentional or not this is a great tribute to Sergio Leone and Clint Eastwood. Between them they account for the best of the genre and the largest contribution.
THANX PAUL for finding this great piece.

I was just watching it a second time and it looked like the homemade instrument at 2:10 was made from an olive oil can. - LOL

Yes, I know dear.

I stand corrected, but what is the other piece that I always thought was El Condor Pasa. I do know it was from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
