Rube Woulda Loved This

I was always a big fan of Rube Goldberg, loving the odd devices that he created for whatever chores needed doing, made from a vast array of household items strung in a row. Just cool.

Well, I think he'd have liked this video clip. The only words are in Japanese, so I have no idea what it says, but considering the little jingle on each one, I'm guessing these are some kind of bumper for a TV show. Each one (quite a lot in the 13 minute movie) rambles along to reveal the title or phrase to the show (or whatever it is) using marbles, tracks, cups, books, and various other stuff, and some of the things they pull off are very impressive.

See, this is the job I need.
