This is full of win! But if I was doing it, I’d use a pan flute, and have the house sing back as the spirit wolf from Twilight Princess.

Srsly, though, this is cool.


Mine’s better. All it understands is “sad trombone”, which is good because that’s all I ever play.*

I just hope he has enough ocarinas for the stampede of sexual partners he must be bringing home oh who am I kidding, it’d work on me

HA! Allen lives in Southern CA, and I can get one of those ocarinas at my local gamestop!

I should figure out where he lives and turn his lights on in the middle of the night.

But on another note (HA! Dad-pun!), I was sad to see Allen not make it to the final on the mythbuster whatever new show. He’s such a cool maker dude that I’m now stuck watching his youtube videos rather than being able to DVR him. :frowning:
