A Muni video ala Deliverance. No nothing about squealing like a pig. This is
pure “Dueling Banjos”. An old, tired idea? You bet, but take a look at
rec.juggling and see how many times the old “eating the apple while juggling”
is listed as an effective audience pleasing trick, while 5 club backcrosses can
be a snooze (unless its done with torches, of course).
The scenario is very simple: Kris Holm is out in Appalachia doing some Muni
(Kris, of course, must be played by someone else, since he is the most likely
choice to portray the backwater virtuoso). He comes across some kid on cheapo
looking unicycle also doing muni. (Of course a high quality Muni must be
disguised as a cheapo unicycle). The music starts and things build with the
soundtrack from a few simple jumps onto and from rocks, to riding down some
logs…ending with the two of them careening down the side of a mountain at
breakneck speed. Naturally, it must end with the Kris character falling in
frustration and admiration.
I think it is fair to say that clever and effective send offs of the “Dueling
Banjos” theme rarely fail to be crowd pleasers.
Well, there it is. Good night!
