Finally, the elephants get to tickle the ivories

One of the horrors of piano history was the killing of elephants so their tusks could be used as the ivory covering the white keys. As far as I know, they never got to play the dang things until now. This video shows an elephant in Thailand jamming on the modern plastics with a human blues player. The elephant deserves a more sensitive accompanist, but is enjoying himself nevertheless.
I would like to play the piano with an elephant, so if anyone knows an elephant who would like to jam, give me a call.
