Meet Cam McAzie, an Australian musician who has been playing the bagpipes since 1995. He has released three albums but it wasn’t until recently that his popularity skyrocketed. He posted a video of himself playing AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” on the bagpipes on May 19, and since then the video has gone viral, racking up over 1,386,000 views so far. And if you don’t think the bagpipes are cool enough, how about the fact that he is shooting fire from them during the song? It just pushes awesomeness to a whole new level.
McAzie seemed pretty excited in his increased popularity, taking to Facebook he posted, “So apparently a thunderstruck street video is going viral in the United States, made it onto breakfast tv or something !! Hopefully Im gonna Blow up in a big way now !! This viral video has spread so far and so wide , Im not a very good tech guy so if anyone has any info on how far this has reached please let me know !!
