WHAT’S MORE METAL THAN SABBATH’S “IRON MAN?” HOW ABOUT “IRON MAN” PLAYED… WITH LIGHTNING!!!
I didn’t see The Sorcerer’s Apprentice because I love myself too much, but I did read the script (I guess I should say “script”) before it went into production. I don’t know if it made it into the final film or not, but there was a subplot in which the hero (played in the movie by Jay Baruchel) builds these conductors (“conductors” like machines, not like a dude with a baton) that can basically play music with lightning. They barely explained the science of it in the script, and I kinda assumed it was a bullshit Hollywood thing…
…but I guess I was wrong, ’cause reader Hetal Bhatt sent us the below video of a group called ArcAttack that uses similar conductors to play “Iron Man” with lightning. And they did it on America’s Got Talent, which features Mrs. Iron Man herself, Sharon Osbourne, as a judge. Sure, these dudes dress like idiots and are clearly nerds, but, I mean, come on — they play music with lightning! Of COURSE they’re nerds!!!
Note to Tool: please incorporate lightning music into your next tour. Thanks.
