Bagpiper Meets Beluga

(Live Leak link)

Bagpiper Tom Leigh plays a tune for the beluga whales at Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. The whale is fascinated. I wonder what the beluga is thinking…

“That sounds like bagpipes. Yes, I see a bag. But wait, there are no pipes! And he isn’t blowing into it! Can that really be bagpipes? How does he do that?”

Or maybe the beluga just enjoys the music. The mystery is solved at reddit. This instrument is called the Scottish small pipes, which are powered by the elbow action on the bellows. What looks like the regular blowpipe is actually several small pipes. Redditor undido remixed the music to simulate what the beluga may actually be hearing. -via Daily Picks and Flicks
