If kids learn the piano or violin it's because their parents made them, but the trombone? That's a choice -- by the kid. Why? Because the trombone is silly. Here are 6 videos that honor that tradition and show the true potential of what choosing the trombone can yield:

 

1. GoPro Trombone

GoPro's best video isn't of a Red Bull fueled action sport, it's of a New York Philharmonic's warping, contusing face.

 

2. Trombonist Sneezes During Concert

You can be the elephant in the room if you choose the trombone.

 

3. Pyro's Flamethrower Trombone

Can you make it so the slide controls the flame? Then we'll talk!

 

4. Trombone Alpine Skiing

Precisely the kind of legacy Wagner wanted to leave behind. So grand, so exalted, so intimidating!

 

5. Insane Trombone Warmup (6 Seconds)

THIS IS THE SPIRIT REQUIRED TO PICK UP THE INSTRUMENT. WE ARE ONLY LOOKING FOR QUALIFIED APPLICANTS.

 

6. Uuh... Horse Face Bikini Girl Meets Trombone Guy

You make what you want out of this.
