My uncle built a home several years ago and to reward himself for a lifetime of hard work, his sprawling, unfinished basement is filled with tools, gadgets and other items of whimsy. He also had a urinal installed in the downstairs bathroom. Why? Because he always wanted one.
Alternatively: Why not? I consider him to be a great success and I hope to someday have a urinal of my own. The whole concept just makes too much sense.
Billboard – that of music chart fame – has installed several Guitar Pee urinals in bars around Sao Paolo, Brazil (see above video) by way of its Billboard Brasil office.
The premise is simple: Each time you hit one of the six strings, you’re rewarded with a pre-recorded, face-melting guitar lick reminiscent of metal mayhem’s finest days. As a bonus, your session is uploaded as an “MPEE3” to the mobile version of the Guitar Pee site.
Needless to say, I would very much like my urinal to be a Guitar Pee urinal, though by the time I’m able to build my own home and install my own urinal, we may all be listening to music through our teeth and science may have invented a once-a-day pill that makes going to the bathroom a thing of the past. Whatever happens, I’ll be keeping the above image in a frame atop my boring, stupid, standard-issue toilet as a reminder to work hard.
