The Badpiper, "Thunderstruck"

Alfred Hitchcock famously said, "I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm." I'm inclined to believe him, and normally I prefer to keep bagpipes even further away from metal than keyboards. But this video of the self-proclaimed "Badpiper" performing AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" has me shakin' at the knees. Much of the buzz this video's been getting centers around the fact that he shoots flames out of his bagpipes, but I think it's even cooler that he plays both the Angus Young and Brian Johnson parts. Enjoy below, along with the original.
