I had to laugh my (blank) off through the whole video. It looked like, a made for the movies, stereotypical well financed evil mad scientist testing his latest evil invention with his trusty sidekick Egor slaving over the crank. Ha Ha Ha.... Great stuff.

WTF? You didnt warn me id have to hear bad singing too! Give that thing to someone who could use it, Richard D. James, Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Byrne.. Someone like that. This dude makes it sounds like a toy piano being thrown down a flight of stairs.. (And the singing! Why God?)
