Man Attacked by Giant Guitar

I’m not sure what the deal is here, but I was walking down the street across from Penn Station the other day and saw this dude playing a gigantic guitar. He wasn’t actually being attacked by it, but me and many others were struck by its ridiculous size. The guy was playing real music on this thing.

It’s funny to think of the mad scientist mind that decided it would be a good idea to create a super-size guitar and make it entirely playable, although unwieldy, for a normal rocker dude.
