Touch Wood xylophone

Although this video was made as an ad for a Japanese smartphone, the creativity and craftsmanship required in the setup and filming is masterful. A single ball rolling down a handcrafted xylophone in a wooded area of Kyushu, Japan, brings us a new rendition of Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring. Watch the video here. Then watch the fascinating follow-up on how it was made. Thanks to Susan Welchman for forwarding it to us.
