Drummer David Dockery continues his series in which he synchronizes his drumming with dialogue, this time adding some rhythm to the words of Peter Griffin. We’re still not sure that he can actually drum all 50 states in a 1/4 of a second though.

Back in 2012, percussion group ЭТНОБИТ (Ethnobeat) transformed the sheets of ice on Siberia’s frozen Lake Baikal into a wondrous natural musical instrument. The recording engineer for this clip deserves just as much praise as the musicians.

You’re So Stupid!

You’re So Stupid!

In order to truly enjoy the comedic timing of the kid drummer in this brief video clip, you must make the assumption that the other kid injured nothing more than his ego. After you do that, it’s comedy gold.
