The New Five Pound Note Can Play A 7″ Vinyl Single

The new polymer five pound notes have a rather curious ability of being just about able to play vinyl records (with the aid of a contact microphone and small amplifier not shown on screen). As the corners on these new banknotes are more durable and sharper than its paper counterpart it acts like a very crude record needle.

If you haven’t already guessed it’s playing the 1976 7” vinyl single ‘Money, Money, Money’ by ABBA. Awesome!
