Quit Whining!

Kurt sends us to: complaints choir: birmingham.


The creation of a Finnish husband-wife artist team, Oliver Kochta Kalleinen and Tellervo Kalleinen, the choir stars in the most instantly accessible and funniest comedy/art video we’ve seen in ages.

The couple invited people in various international cities to submit their complaints, which were then set to churchly choir music under the direction of a local choral director. So far there have been complaints choirs in Hamburg, St. Petersburg, Helsinki, and Birmingham, England — with videos for the latter two available online.

The Helsinki one isn’t in English, but it’s better.

PS The year-end tally is in, and the winner of complaints, by a factor of 5:1 in my reader mail, is Home Depot.

Oh yeah, happy Thanksgiving.
