    That is awesome! How does one get an amazing job like that? I'm jealous.

    The animation was clever, but almost made me dizzy at one point, and I wish it was slower so you could actually see what everything was!

    I imagine that is what peck's cellar looks like

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    Pagan! Haven't you seen the pictures of Peck's "Barn"? Trump wishes he had so nice! The Smoking Pipes video is just Peck's garage.

    Good to see a team of employees working together like that. It's indicative of the spirit around there. Cheers, SP crew.

    Nice place! It seems huge for a niche online retailer.

    I would have preferred a slower paced and longer in duration video to take it all in.

    I was sort of hoping for death metal posters on the walls, but I imagine they were just on the walls that we did not see.

    I noticed nothing because I couldn't stop being driven crazy by the half rest before the last note of each verse phrase that shouldn't be there. AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

    What... butchery.

    You want proof? Here's the original:

    I noticed that it sounded a little different but didn't let it bother me.

    ...but didn't let it bother me.

    My particular brain model doesn't have that option, unfortunately.

    I watched it without sound - luckily, sounds like.

    I would have lost my mind as well - same model as George.

    It doesn't help, of course, that I literally grew up listening to and playing that music. Every last note of every last popular instrumental tune of the era is etched onto a brain cell somewhere in my head.

    Notice the first song title listed (it's the warehouse video's soundtrack, Pipeline):

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Ventures-Play-Guitar-With-The-Ventures-Volume-2-LP-1960s-pressing-/381842726705hash=item58e7999f31:g:OO4AAOSwx2dYFkdt

    I literally wore out those play along records, and remember having TWO of that exact LP.
