The Vuvuzela

15 Jun

If you have watched a single minute of the World Cup, then you have undoubtedly heard the overwhelming obnoxiousness of the Vuvuzela.

You see the Vuvuzela horns in the photo, now multiply that by, say, 30,000. The sound you get is a deafening buzz that sounds like a combination of a massive active bee hive and charging elephants.

Fans, players, coaches, and referees have complained, and so have I. Nevertheless, my curiosity led me to wonder if you could actually make any sort of respectable music with these horns, needless to say tolerable sounds. Here is what I found, enjoy.

    The Vuvuzela, just when you though kazoos were the most annoying “musical instruments”
