Absolutely Remarkable Xylophone Self Plays Bach To Sell Phones

Fellow humans never cease to amaze me. I'd love to have been in that meeting where someone said, "ok look...we build this giant delicate xylophone in the forest that plays the final chorus of Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring, by J.S. Bach. Oh and instead of a person playing it, we'll have a wooden egg that rolls down the suspended giant of a xylophone and each piece of wood will be a note in the score that will sound as the egg rolls from wooden slat to wooden slat, with the speed determined by gravity. It'll be great"

Ok, it's all to sell a cellphone that has an exterior made of wood, but who cares, this is genius.
