Watch This Bizarre Cover of Skrillex’s “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” Played On a Squijeeblion

Have you ever heard of an instrument called a squijeeblion? Neither have we—until we discovered this bizarre cover of Skrillex's "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites."

The eccentric instrument was invented by Leonard Solomon, who performs the cover himself. His YouTube channel features an array of other covers played on outlandish homemade instruments.

The air-powered, acoustic squijeeblion sounds like a mixture of wind instruments, an organ and a foghorn, but the "bass drop" was the most surprising sound of all. Recreating the dubstep classic with a zany, whimsical touch, Solomon's squijeeblion cover is a perfect tribute to the 2010 dubstep classic.

"This song always makes me smile and laugh when I listen to the original version, he wrote on YouTube. "I hope my rendition does something like that for you."
