"When advertising executives saw a video of Boston theremin player Jon Bernhardt performing the old Buggles song ‘‘Video Killed the Radio Star’’ on YouTube, the MIT math grad was headhunted for the White Castle fast-food chain’s new advertising campaign."The problem, once again, is that the Boston Globe does not provide links to the video that's the main part of the story.
No links in the paper and no links online.
I'll provide the links to the theremin videos I found on YouTube here: Theremin 1, Theremin 2.
I also found Theremin Killed the Radio Star, the video that got White Castle interested in the first place. This video rocks!
A quick Google search leads us to Christopher Lydon's Open Source blog post, White Castle Thereminist Speaks, which has a link to the video and a link to Jon Bernhardt's blog.
The irony here is that Christopher Lydon's blog is for a radio show, and he has video!
How many times do I have to blog about this?
