Thanks for this, Joe. I've just watched this clip in all of its 4:33
glory. I'm speechless, quite frankly. I'm not sure if it's innovative
because it sets simple statistical concepts to music in a way not done
before, or excreable because it uses quite possibly the worst form of
music to do it in. Maybe a bit of both.

Whereever you go and whatever you do, just remember this. No matter how
many like you, admire you, love you or adore you, the number of people
turning up to your funeral will be largely determined by local weather
conditions.
