This is a video of Europe's 'The Final Countdown' (aka Gob Bluth's theme song) performed by hardware engineer Paweł Zadrożniak's Floppotron, a band consisting of 64 floppy drives, eight hard drives and two scanners. I would not pay more than a dollar to see it in concert. 'The Final Countdown' -- now that's a solid exercise song. That's what I listen to when I'm working out. And by working out I mean driving around the gym parking lot twice before deciding I'm hungry and hitting up Burger King instead. Who am I kidding, I didn't even bring gym clothes.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to carey, who makes her roommate sing The Final Countdown whenever she comes home from work because that's what roommates are for. Plus eating their food when they're not around.

    I wonder how many dumpsters and pawn shops this guy had to frequent to get all of these ancient pieces of ****?

    Plus, how many hours of his life that he won't get back writing the code for all of them to do this?

    He can get the hours back, but only if he gets The Floppotron to play Stairway to Heaven backwards.
