She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy

This musical instrument is made almost completely from John Deere tractor parts ............Simply amazing

"This incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between the Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School of Engineering at the University of Iowa . Amazingly, 97% of the machines components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation equipment of Bancroft Iowa , yes farm equipment!

It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up, alignment, calibration, and tuning before filming this video but as you can see it was WELL worth the effort.

It is now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University and is already slated to be donated to the Smithsonian. ... "

UPDATE: Guess it is CGI, thats right just animation, cool animation though.

UPDATE 2:SNOPES debunks it.......

ya know......I was thinking the same thing, the ability to make all the balls land in the small tubes is what made me skeptical.....Hmmm
