I thought this was a viagra commercial, but now I realize this is a career option that I am — genuinely — not qualified for. [1:50].


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    Many of those of us with the minimal qualifications will feel that there are better careers to go for.

  2. i’d bet those boyz are well-paid, but i’d also bet they are pursuing their piano-playing career option for the fringe benefits instead of the wages. just think of all the babes you are missing out on by being a stats geek instead of .. erm, a piano player, bob!

  3. Pierce R. Butler says:

    Assuming, just for the fun of it, that the Brothers are not wearing strap-ons, the two questions which come unavoidably to mind are:
    (a) Just what thoughts do they conjure to (ahem) inspire their performance? – and
    (b) How much callus have they built up during their rehearsals and recitals? (The competition among their groupies must be intense…)

  4. Bob O'H says:

    Grrl – I would need wider keys on the piano.

  5. okay, you both are exhibiting disordered thinking. magicians and other hucksters thrive on thinking like this. have either of you considered that those boyz might actually be .. erm, for the lack of a better term, penis-syncing?

    they are not using their born-again appendages. close to the end of the piece (no pun intended), the guy on the left was completely out-of-sync with the music for a short bit…
    jeez, it’s tough NOT to be double-puntendre’d in this message…

  7. peter says:

    well with an act like this, you always sort of hope it’s legit at first… there are certain tricks that when you see them you know it must be conjuring or faking, and there are others that are (or at least might be) pure skill… in this case, I admit I was hoping for the latter, but am satisfied with the clever former…
