See John Cougar Get Murdered by a Crank Phonograph

Post by MikeB »

I wasn't sure where or if I should post a link to this YouTube video, and I don't have the heart to tell this guy that he just murdered John Cougar on his windup phonograph. So here is your comedic relief for the week, or your screaming horror. Depends if you are a John Cougar fan, I guess.

Well, I'll tell him ! :shock: :? :roll:
It is from 2015 though, so who knows where that guy is now.
He probably burned his house down when he lit a fire in the middle of his living room to keep warm.
And those stupid board shorts ! :x

Really this is a positive sign for our hobby...This guy knows nothing about phonographs, but is obviously enamored by this unknown thing...

Yes, in the same way that his cat is fascinated by the machine... :D
