I was reading Eddy's comments on the Lang Lang discussion, where he says he would enjoy his Glenn Gould recordings better if the Canadian were not given to humming. I then remembered I once came across the ultimate solution:

I've seen this before - it is funny! I think this was just up here not too long ago, though. Could be I'm having another deja vu moment....

Nope, I posted this link not so very long ago.

Here's another GG pastiche by the excellent Dutch (Swiss-born) comedian Drs. P.

I should have known you were the one who put this up first... :wink:
