Modern Angel - 2009-09-07

I howled with laughter

it must be close to a religious experience to pick up an instrument you've never played before and play a piece of popular music you've never played before...epiphany

Trumpets were always the worst in our school band.

memedumpster - 2009-09-07

This is laugh out loud wonderful!

"The Charles Nelson Riley Elementary Old VHS Tape Symphony Orchestra is proud to present... That Copy of 2001 You Had In Your Closet for Eighteen Years!"

Elvis Hitler - 2009-09-07

All my stars for this

Camonk - 2009-09-07

A lot of awkward silences and insincere congratulations on the ride home from that particular performance.

Screwtape - 2011-03-18

Most people are as tone deaf as the these kids were inept, so probably not.

Aplsos - 2009-09-07

oh no elephants

Randroid - 2009-09-07

Performed by the very same apes.

poorwill - 2009-09-07

Tears coming out of my eyes. Snot going down my throat, choking me. Snot going all over my keyboard. Laughing, crying, holy shit.

Tuan Jim - 2009-09-07

I think I pulled something.

It's not a school orchestra, it's the very famous Portsmouth Sinfonia.


All their dozens of recordings are up to this standard.

ztc - 2009-09-07

Good article here:


Lies, lies, LIES! - 2011-03-21

That article is funnier than the music: 'The Sinfonia was once served with a cease-and-desist order by the publishers of Also Sprach Zarathustra. To Lewis's eternal regret, the case never came to court. "I wanted to bring the whole orchestra in as witnesses. They complained that we'd rearranged the piece, and we said, 'No, we haven't, we just haven't been able to play it very well.'"

That was fantastic. Can we get some more dubs of famous movie scenes with the soundtrack replaced by inept orchestras?

Mister Shady - 2009-09-07

Now they need to perform with tone deaf Star Wars lady. 5 stars for breaking it down freestyle at the end.

Hooker - 2009-09-07

The Residents would be proud.

Maggot Brain - 2009-09-07

It's jazz!

William Burns - 2009-09-08

Reminds me of "The Booker Tease" by The Residents, but even better.

Simian Pride - 2009-09-10

Oh God, I can't breathe!

Lauritz Melchior - 2009-09-10

Oh Jesus.

Oh god.

Somebody help me: this is amazing!

Banal Intercourse - 2009-09-11

I want this to be the soundtrack to the rest of my life!

Wombles - 2009-09-13

Soundtrack of my nightmares

AmericanAir - 2009-09-21

Fucking amazing.

fluffy - 2009-10-01

I laughed so hard I snorted. That happens less often than you'd think.

JimL2 - 2009-10-05

I finally got around to checking against my Portsmouth Sinfonia collection. ZTC is right, it's definitely them. Sounds like it's from a vinyl LP. I highly recommend all of their other work, if you "enjoy" this.

JimL2 - 2009-10-05

Hah! It's actually in the hopper, I guess, 2000 submissions before this one: http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=64721&what=VOTING
