The three minutes fifty-seven video clip is viral, and you can easily find it online on YouTube. It starts with the pupe drummer playing his neon pipe drums on a random street. The passers-by were uninterested at first, but as he continued playing, they couldn’t resist the melody of his pipe drumming for long.

The highlight of the clip was a young girl and a woman dancing to the drumming. They both cast off their inhibitions and let loose as the drummer pounded away at his pipe kit. All in all, it was a very wholesome moment caught on camera.
