    Last sentence in the video: “My ears hurt.”

    Also, he calls it a “flute,” and who am I to question him? ;-)

  2. irksome says:

    “Listen to this cabbage flute. Just listen to it.”

  3. Mark Malone says:

    I have a flute made out of skin.

  4. voiceinthedistance says:

    Better tone than the skin flute, although he holds his mouth the same way.

  5. splashu says:

    I always love his deadpan translated video descriptions:

    “I made musical instruments from the cabbage. 
    A very high sound is heard.”


  6. Brad H. says:

    If that was napa cabbage, the Koreans would go apeshit.

    Slide whistle meets flute … meets  cabbage.
    He might be able to get a deeper pitch from it if he hallowed it out.

      No, he’s not getting a pitch out of the cabbage, he’s getting it out of the wooden flute thing that he’s shoved through it.

        Oh, ye of little faith.
        This is not the man’s first musical vegetable. He has 31(!) videos featuring homemade vegetable instruments on YouTube. 28 if you’re a stickler for rules and refuse to classify (ostrich-)eggs and mushrooms as vegetables.

    Golden opportunity missed to do the classic roooOOOOOOooooWHOOP slide whistle cartoon sound effect with a cabbage.

    I’m gonna say slide flute, as it is played transverse and he is forming an embouchere. Not an ocarina, as there is no fipple. 

    • Too many words I don’t know; and that’s in reference to your comment, not the Japanese chap.

    • Elisabeth Broe says:

      Or MAYBE it’s a panpipe (which he has shoved through a hole in the cabbage), because he’s blowing transverely across the TOP, not the side like a flute. Now I’m picturing one of those native Andes bands like you see in San Francisco, on the subway in NY, and- strangely- in Istanbul dressed up like plains Indians, and their panpipes are all shoved through various produce items.

    I love the way that cabbage just appears.  Nae cabbage… cabbage.

  11. GawainLavers says:

    I’m just grateful it isn’t a goddamn ukulele.

  12. bo1n6bo1n6 says:

    let me pack up my apple pipe and give that another listen…

  13. Elisabeth Broe says:

    No he didn’t, he just shoved a flutey thing through a hole in the cabbage. Or am I missing something here?

    • guanto says:

      He says it’s a “stick” though, which I take to mean it’s solid. Who knows though…

      • Culturedropout says:

        Well, I assume there’s a hollow cut through the core of the cabbage and he’s using the stick to control the depth of the cavity he’s blowing over.  That being said, I really hope they didn’t have coleslaw later…

    Dude’s expressions were more entertaining than his actual musical antics.

  15. RJ says:

    Imagine “Nola” played entirely with comestibles.
