I have never seen anything like this before...
Or, like this...
Who knew that you could mix these elements--four ordinary looking guys, cars, jars, hubcaps, broken pianos, paint guns, umbrellas, mannequins, old guitars, and a bunch of other random objects--into videos filled with such images and sounds?
What about you? Did you know?
You see, that's the rub here. These guys took objects that you rarely even find in the same location and combined them for a completely new purpose.
They took things that you and I might just walk past at some kind of crazy flea market or dusty antique mall and they created something new...and wonderful...and shareable, as evidenced by well over 50 million views so far.
Somehow, they saw the hidden value of hubcaps as cymbals, jars as xylophones, and car doors as drums.
Hey, that blinker makes a great metronome, don't you think?
Oh, and they looked at those old scrap pianos and thought it would be a good idea to topple them for the complex sounds and extraordinary visual impact they would make.
Where you and I might see old chairs, they saw tumbling dominoes.
The fan and umbrella? Why that's a great way to transmit the motion to the swinging teapot, of course.
And, you can't overlook the creative leap it took to recognize the finale value found in four paint cannons aimed at four nondescript musicians. Icing on cake!
Let me ask, what are you creating?
When you take inventory of the things around you, and most importantly, the things inside of you, do you recognize the potential for creating something that is new...and wonderful...and shareable?
Make it your habit to look at the things in you and around you differently.
Look for the hidden purpose.
You know, the purpose you've ignored or missed because you've been too busy.
You have new and wonderful in you.
