Wouldn't it be great to show up to an acoustic gig with just a plastic cup?
This was partly inspired by the Cup Game from the PBS children's program, Zoom, and a recent news story. There was a physical therapy class that was using the Cup Game to keep a class of senior citizens active. The story reminded me of the bit from Zoom and it didn't seem as difficult as the Arm Trick or speaking Ubbi-Dubbi.
Just so happens I had a Red Solo Cup in the kitchen and decided to try it myself. I quick Google search later, I could get through the motions but it sounded like a car with a square wheel. Once I had it down, I quickly did the recording while it was fresh in my head. The next day, I could kinda make it through the beat but it was slowly slipping away.
Trivia: Although the video is only 25 seconds long, it is more gratifying than the time I sang the Toby Keith single, Red Solo Cup, at a show.
It's been over three decades and I still don't get it...
