A speeding toy train plays the William Tell Overture on bottles

Enjoy this clip from Japanese television: Members of AKB48, a popular music group consisting of more than 130 young women, arrange bottles along a toy train track so that the speeding train will play the William Tell Overture, hitting the bottles in perfect timing as it goes by.

Updated video. The original vid showed how they worked out the bottle notes and placement.
