Art has officially reached its high point!
YouTuber Pupsi just uploaded what may be the greatest, most talented video of all time. Using only sweet potatoes and a pumpkin, he managed to create a pitch-perfect cover of “Africa” by Toto.
The internet, filled with quality people of good taste, was obviously beyond excited to have this new video in their lives:

If this guy learns to do the guitar parts with a slab of roast port, Luke is out of a job.

“Africa” is good no matter how it’s performed.
OKAY, OKAY, MY SPOUSE JUST YELLED AT ME THAT I'M FILLING MY HEAD WITH GARBAGE, BUT THIS GUY PLAYS AFRICA ON A POTATO-OCARINA, YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS.

I was showing my kids this video, without telling them anything about it.
When it hit the chorus (around 2:46), my 6yo says “They’re playing Africa!”
Raising them right.https://t.co/Fffac5wCBQ

There’s something beautiful about making your own instruments, then jamming with them.

You may not have known that you needed to see someone play Africa by Toto using only sweet potatoes and squashes until now, but trust me you did… https://t.co/VwUjLWSbBp

Of course, many other…unique covers of “Africa” can be found online.
These are merely a small sample of what’s readily available on YouTube!
A huge congratulations to Pupsi for pushing our culture even further into the future with your amazing art and, as always, the biggest congratulations goes to Toto for writing the most incredible song on planet Earth.
