Swedish musician Martin Molin does too considering he spent 14 months assembling a multi-purpose vibraphone, replete with a bass and kick-drum, and powered by 2,000 marbles.

In a video posted to YouTube, the leader of band Wintergarten cranks levers on his handmade contraption, creating an OK Go-sized spectacle you have to see to believe. It’s as impressive musically as it is in an engineering sense.
