Thanks so much to Salvador Olguin for drawing this wonderful video to my attention! I simply cannot stop watching it.

Fantastic!! Now, if I can point you to an even better song in this vein, here is simply the best bone-related song ever recorded, no joke:

All voices, with a guitar just quietly in the background. I have featured it in a CD compilation called 'The Human Orchestra', named after a great vinyl comp from the 80's in which all the groups (from the late 20's to the early '40's)
imitated instruments with their voices.

Enjoy!

Amazing! Thanks a lot JE! I knew that song from the videogame "Monkey Island 2", but I did not realize that it was not original at all. Lost in translation, lost in culture...

Here´s the comparation betwen the video and the videogame:
