Piano-crush test at the Kirkaldy Testing Museum

Investigator Andrew George alerted us to this video, which documents a piano being crushed at the Kirkaldy Testing Museum, in London. The museum tests materials.

Andrew George says “I found this a rather disturbing video – especially around 1 min 50 secs when there was a little terminal music.”

You can see and hear Andrew George test the mettle and patience of an audience of 750 people this Friday evening, March 20, when he recites some of William Topaz McGonagall‘s bad poetry, as part of the Ig Nobel show at Imperial College London.

BONUS: A treatise about piano destruction.
