What better way to start the week off than by watching a mesmerising Rube Golberg-esque xylophone contraption at work.

This two minute film is actually a Japanese advert for Sharp Touch Wood mobile phone, (a phone partially made out of waste wood), and features a massive wooden xylophone which runs through a picture-esque woodland. A small ball is released and as it travels down the the musical instrument it plays the classical piece Bach, Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, from Cantata 147.
