Welcome to the Strange: A Dude Just Made A Playable Record Out Of A Tortilla!

Hey strangers, how are you this week? I am doing pretty keen. So two things I really like just got made into one thing, that is right Mexican food and music are now as one!

Inspired by a viral YouTube video showing  a tortilla “playing” the song Jarabe Tapatio (It wasn’t really playing the tune), Redditor UpgradeTech decided to create a real, playable record out of the delicious Tortilla.

“I thought I could do that video one better,” UpgradeTech wrote on Reddit. “I was already familiar with laser cutting records at 78 rpm on acrylic for use in gramophones … I decided to see if I could make it work on an actual tortilla.”

UpgradeTech used a laser cutter to embed grooves into the tortilla. He noted that “uncooked ones seem to work the best since they are the flattest.” As this video below shows, he was successful in his attempt.

The tortilla apparently plays Jarabe Tapatio (also known as The Mexican Hat Dance). It’s still a tortilla, though, so don’t expect much in terms of sound quality but do expect some deliciousness.

UpgradeTech also uploaded step-by-step instructions for creating a tortilla record. Check it out HERE.

I think this is pretty freaking awesome, how about you? Can I get The Voodoo Glow Skulls album “Who Is, This is?” on a tortilla? Stay Strange!
