Thomas The Tank Engine Theme Recreated Using Washing Machines

People have taken up the most random of hobbies during the coronavirus lockdown. From flogging pictures of their feet, taking up beekeeping and even performing well-known tunes with their washing machines... Thomas the Tank Engine to be precise.

YouTuber Kurt Schneider and his guitarist pal, Jason Pitts, are the brains behind this masterpiece.

Oh and it's not just the Thomas & Friends theme tune that they've got up their sleeves - together they've performed a whole host of songs including SpongeBob SquarePants, Pirates of the Caribbean and Star Wars.

Not only are Kurt and Jason in complete unison for the Thomas number but they also manage to pull a grand finale out of the bag... well, out of the washer.

As the tune is coming to an end, Jason reaches inside and pulls out a recorder, popping it in Kurt's mouth for him to re-enact a sound of a train. Class.

We've got to give it to them - they've absolutely nailed every single recreation and it's not just us appreciating their efforts.

One person wrote: "I swear if you broke that machine it was worth it," while another added: "You can't learn this. This is talent."

A third asked: "Does your washing machine have like literally EVERY single note to ever exist?"

Someone else said: "Thank you for the dedication! You two are kinds among poor percussionists."

In one of Kurt's other videos, him and Jason take on the Harry Potter theme tune using what look to be the same washing machines - seems like proof that this wizardry isn't breaking them.

It was shared on TikTok with the caption: "Harry Potter doing laundry be like," which then on the next clip gave a little plea to the public, with the caption: "This took hours, don't let it flop."

The end of the video pretty much kills you off though. After finishing his washing, 'Harry' scurries off to his little cupboard and his mate shuts the door on him. Weird? Yep. Hilarious? Also yep.

Kurt Schneider, who posted the clip and stars as Harry, is actually a musician, producer and songwriter, which would explain his amazing washing machine skills.

He describes himself on his TikTok platform as 'CEO of music with weird things', which seems pretty spot on based on this video.
