The magazine Billboard Brasil aims to please. And, gentleman, at the risk of destroying an old joke, your aim helps, too.
The publisher of the music weekly has developed a product that promises to relieve the boredom some males of the species evidently experience when relieving themselves. Meet Guitar Pee, an interactive add-on that converts an ordinary public urinal into a musical instrument. The product (pictured here) even looks like a standard electric guitar, with six steel strings, a pick-up, and a fretboard ending in tuning pegs.
The novelty invention was developed as a marketing tie-in to the company’s slogan, which is “Music. We know it comes from everywhere.” It will be featured in bars across São Paulo.
The device is programmed to play a different solo riff with each new use. So how well does it work? This video captures the product in action as well as the reaction of several users, some of whom appear surprised at the sound of music. If nothing else, the footage gives a new meaning tostreaming video.
CNET reports that the device not only creates but records your musical output. Once you’ve flushed, it generates a personalized number, allowing listeners to recall their user-generated content at the Guitar Pee website. There is no word on whether the company plans to develop a piano version for those who prefer to tinkle the ivories while tinkling.
Remarkably, Guitar Pee is not the first invention intended as a diversion during one of life’s unavoidable bodily functions. In April, Sega Games unveiled the Toylet, a urinal add-on that allows the user to play a video game mid-stream.
In the meantime, no one has invented a distraction for sit-down performances, which I suppose will continue to mean a reliance on on-throne reading for many.
