The National Anthem. We have all seen singers that have had an issue with the words. Today we see a cymbal player experience the ultimate fail. What would you do in a situation where your musical instrument literally falls out of your hands?

This video is from a school band concert. The band is playing the Star Spangled Banner. That song lends itself to dramatic crashing of cymbals to really accent its beauty. The cymbal player has a major equipment problem. His reaction to that problem is priceless and absolutely perfect. The focus of the action takes place at about 1:05 of the video if you're just so darn busy you can't patiently watch the whole thing.

When you watch it again, because you will. Take note of the young lady playing the large drum to the right. She does a masterful job of not laughing out loud.
