  • Description

    Note: Location of the events are unknown.

    Full titles read: "CAN YOU BELIEVE YOUR EARS ? - Microphones have strange ideas on certain sounds, which don't always "register" as you'd imagine, especially when largely amplified, for instance, guess this sound..."

    A strange grating sound is heard, it sounds like it could be someone filing their nails. However a M/S reveals a woman spraying perfume on herself. The next one sounds a someone using a hammer, but is in actual fact a woman using a large chopping blade on some vegetables. Several more sounds and shots of what they actually are including an axe chopping wood, a small boy slurping soup, and a woman getting undressed.
