Street Musician Plays AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" On Flaming Bagpipes
Cam McAzie is a hard-rockin' Australian bagpipe player and street musician who calls himself "The Badpiper." His specialty is playing awesome rock music on the bagpipes. You may not think that sounds like a winning combo, but you'll be singing a different tune after you hear him absolutely slay "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC. Just in case the combination of AC/DC's foot-stomping anthems and bagpipes aren't enough though, McAzie's got another claim to fame - his bagpipes shoot fire!
McAzie shot to fame in Australia after appearing on the 2010 season of Australia's Got Talent, where he wowed the crowd and the judges enough to make it all the way to the finals before being eliminated. Judges agreed that his use of the bagpipes was truly a unique approach to the instrument. After his impressive showing in the competition, McAzie then shot to global fame when this video from 2013, showing him performing publicly in Fremantle, Australia, became a massive viral hit.
