Street drummers are cool

This [6mb mpeg] is a fantastic little video of a guy drumming in the street on paint cans. No idea when/where it comes from. (From Kingblind)

Come to New York, where you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a few of those drummers.
I used to see this guy a bunch. Wasn't he actually in a Gap ad or something?
There used to be a kid named Larry Wright whose father pimped him out on the street (so to speak) playing joint compound buckets about 10 years ago... He had great technique and used to pop up here and there on tv... a short film on him shown on PBS... a Mariah Carey video... and a talk show or two. He even made it on to a couple of people's albums if I remember correctly. He's probably in his early twenties now.
