Sashimi Tabernacle Choir, Art Car Covered With Singing Fish and Lobsters

Geeks Are Sexy make a great video about the Sashimi Tabernacle Choir, an art car from Houston covered with over 250 computer controlled singing fish and lobsters.

Texan Richard Carter took a Volvo, 5 miles of wire, five 6-volt golf cart batteries, a screw drive mechanism using 12v DC reversible motor, a lifting frame he made from scratch, a Linux server and approximately two hundred synchronized singing fish, and created what can only be described as an awesomely effective assault on good taste.

The Sashimi Tabernacle Choir is a regular at ArtCar Fest. Here it is at ArtCar Fest 2003.
