Clever Ad: Record Player Made from a Cardboard Box and a Pencil

Vancouver-based sound studio Griffiths, Gibson and Ramsay Productions is mailing out cardboard boxes that can be used as record players. Designed by ad firm Grey Canada, the player works by placing the 45 rpm record on the peg, lowering the needle, and spinning the record with a pencil. The gadget then plays a recording of the children's story “A Town That Found Its Sound.” Apparently the sound quality is not bad, from what we've read.
