Watch A Quirky Orchestra Play Mozart After Chugging Suntory's Energy Drink
43 Coin Tosses, and Caffeine-Fueled Concentration, Make Music

Japan's Suntory bills its product Shuchu Regain as an "energy drink for the brain." Agencies Dentsu, Ignite and Party devised an eccentric experiment mixing Shuchu Regain with science, a Mozart tune and 43 people doing a near-simultaneous coin-toss.
In the video, dubbed "The Extreme Minuet: World's Fastest Orchestra," the "musicians" are 43 scientific-looking types in lab coats tossing coins into glasses filled to different levels, to make different musical notes. At normal speed, the coin toss just seems like two seconds of noise from clinking glasses. When the panning shot is slowed down, it's revealed to be a Mozart tune.
