This Guy Just Made a Playable Vinyl Record Out of a Tortilla. And It Sounds Terrible

TIME

After a joke video of a tortilla spinning on a record player to the Jarabe Tapatio (aka The Mexican Hat Dance) went viral a few months ago, YouTube user Rapture Records decided he could do one better.

So he got himself an uncooked tortilla and a laser cutter and made a playable, albeit shaky, vinyl record.

“I was already familiar with laser cutting records at 78 rpm on acrylic for use in gramophones,” he wrote in a Reddit post. “I decided to see if I could make it work on an actual tortilla.”

Rapture Records says uncooked tortillas work the best, “since they are the flattest” and it takes about half an hour to make a 7” record that lasts around 30 seconds.

As well as the Jarabe Tapatio, he’s made tortilla records that play other tortilla-related songs, including the Macarena, Yakko’s World and Puttin’ on the Ritz by Taco.
