If you never thought that a steam iron – yes you read that right – could deliver a stellar performance of the iconic ghost hunters theme song, you are going to feast this Halloween.
A wide-eyed steam iron, accompanied by a group of wide-eyed group members, including electric toothbrushes, credit card readers, typewriters, a body trimmer, an epilator and a nail polishing machine, played his lifeless little heart on Saturday during a performance of “Ghostbusters” by YouTuber Device orchestra.
The blanket was a lovely reminder that there are still good and wonderful things in the world, despite the current flow apparently unending disasters. One of the electric toothbrushes even dressed up as a ghost for Halloween. Also, I never thought I would say that inanimate electronic devices are cute, but the googly eyes and pipe cleaner arms are sure to make anyone’s heart tighten.
The cover is the work of Device Orchestra, whose name is quite self-explanatory: it performs covers of popular songs using sounds produced by electronic devices. As we only hear the song and see the video, there is a lot of electronics at work “under the hood,” as it says, like microcontrollers, circuit boards, wires, and power supplies.
In September, Device Orchestra offered us a cover of “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” complete with house club lights – a light in a shot glass under a bowl – and an electric toothbrush with googly blue eyes. Other notable covers include Star Wars’ “Imperial March” featuring toasters (which unfortunately left Device Orchestra without a working toaster and unable to toast) and the Pokemon theme song with electric toothbrushes.
According to his Patreon, Device Orchestra would like to do concerts someday, but it still needs more funding before it gets there. Until then, you can help him buy the things he needs for his videos, like electronics and googly eyes, and help pay his electricity bills. It’s a parcel of things plugged in at the same time.
