Man Dressed as Charmander Plays Pokemon Theme Song on Flaming Bagpipes While Balancing on Poke Ball

This man is indeed the very best, like no one ever was.


Here's something unexpected and impressive. A multi-talented musician dressed as Charmander recently performed the Pokemon theme song using flaming bagpipes while balancing on a Poke Ball.

This happened recently in Portland, Oregon, a city whose popular slogan is "Keep Portland Weird." The man in the video below (via GameSpot sister site CNET) is Brian Kidd AKA The Unipiper--and this is not his first video where he plays a popular song on flaming bagpipes while in costume.

Go to The Unipiper's YouTube page to see more of his videos, including one where he dresses up like Darth Vader and has a lightsaber battle with Bigfoot.
