The underdog inventor's creations have evolved into a musical instrument of sorts, playing "Dueling Banjos" in a video by FONentertainment on YouTube. The clip is not new but it recently gained viral momentum, popping up Boing Boing, Devour, and Laughing Squid, among other blogs, in the past 24 hours.  Thanks to Stephen Marquez for sending the video our way.
