In the picture above it is clear that a guy is holding a misshapen beer can to his lips – he's not drinking from it, he's using it to help him recreate the sound of a V10 engine. That's right: one man, one can, and the wail of one ten-cylinder motor.

But we cannot stress enough that this is not your average beer-can trick. In the nearly seven-minute video demonstrating how to do it yourself, he turns into Bill Nye the Science Guy, providing a waveform of the sound of a V10 with high, mid, and low frequency breakdowns and glossal interactions with the can, plus aural relationships to "a third major chord" that he replicates with a keyboard. Science class and fun, you'll find them in the video below.

      That's automotive neediness cool! Awesome. And why the hell are people ASSuming he is unemployed?! Obviously he's a car fan and it appears he has some background in music/audio to figure this out. Btw, I do know a few guys in audio production and they do cray hours (deadlines). And that fact that you are on this site should also imply you need to get a job? Sheeshs...

      I tried this with a rubber glove and it sounded like a Toyota Prius.

        He just might be a genius. First impressions can be deceiving.

      It sounds like a heavily modded naturally aspirated Viper. I know, because I had one. IT sounds nothing like the Gallardo.
