Jeep Cherokee beatbox – Click above to watch video

If your Jeep Cherokee has been sitting around for a while, it probably makes a few noises. You might not mind, though, if they were noises as well orchestrated as those in the video shown above.

British saxophonist Julian Smith spent a few hours with a Cherokee and an array of friends with rhythm and came up with a number that could be straight out of Stomp. Or an Art of Noise album. Follow the jump to see the vid, and as a bonus, there's another take on car beats with Snob Scrilla and a Toyota Yaris. Thanks for the tips, everyone!

      The Julian Smith who made this video is not the British saxophonist Julian Smith who appeared in the Britain's Got Talent show. He even made a parody video of the saxophonist Julian Smith.

      The saxophonist Julian Smith:

        That's hilarious - the parody. The kid's good with the editing!! :-)

        Also, check out Bino White...if you open the Jeep video in a separate window there's a link on the side to a Bino/Julian video...then check out some of his (Bino's) other rap videos. Friggin' funny stuff. I'm losing sleep this week...LOL

      Waaaay cool! My 98 Jeep Cherokee Box was my favorite all time vehicle, followed by the present GC Laredo.

      All those years yelling at the kids for playing with the 'LOCK' button. Who'd have known?! It just proves I'm waaay cooler than they ever thought.

      They're into high tech cars now... my 4.0 H.O. is the butt of bad jokes.

      Nice. Hmmm, guess I've seen too many bad American TV shows, but at the end when they all ran away, thought it was going to blow up or something...
