The deep corners of the internet always lead to enlightenment. For me, at least! An example? This YouTuber who covers hit songs using fruits and veggies. Now that I know him, I strongly believe he must be protected at all costs.
His YouTube channel goes by the name of "Pupsi," but the man behind the magic is Toni Patanen from Finland, according to his YouTube bio. "Here I'm going to post vegetable content in the name of memes," his bio continues. Which he does indeed.
While some memes are boring or tasteless, the work done on Pupsi's YT page is not so. It actually takes a level of precision and talent to play recognizable tunes with melons, squash, or carrots. He shows how he makes the food instruments, or as he refers to them, "ocarinas." Ocarinas are small wind instruments, not totally unlike a flute.
He hollows out the fruits and vegetables, which is like next-level ASMR, and carves out strategic holes in order to play them. He shows his entire artistic process, which includes him testing out the "instruments" to hear their pitch before correcting it if need be.
In his most recent video, Patanen quite flawlessly covers Smash Mouth's "All Star." He uses a watermelon, what appears to be a spaghetti squash, and edits in sound bytes from his carving to add different layers to the beat. I'm officially a fan. This man has taste!
Patanen has also covered "Africa" by Toto because is it really a meme if he didn't? He's also done other hits like Darude's "Sandstorm" and "Mask Off" by Future. This guy is honestly so pure and loves music so much that he learned how to play literal food instruments. I love it! When is he going on tour? I'm not saying I'd go but...I'm not not saying that either.
