No Way to Clean a Typewriter

The late, great Irish rock guitarist Gary Moore had a minor hit in 1990 with his song "Still Got the Blues" from the album of the same name. An awesome song and strong album, no doubt about it. But I find this video a little stressful. Time and time again, with every repeated viewing, a beautiful and seeming functional classic typewriter is dumped into a bucket of water (at around 3:37). This sort of unchecked aggression and blatant typewriter abuse will not stand. Moore died of a heart attack in Spain at age 58 on Feb. 6, 2011.
