Remember the Big Mouth Bill Bass singing fish that was so popular back in the 90s? Of course you do. Well,
there’s a place called the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club in Chicago that recently bought and installed more than 70 of them. But they don’t do Take Me To The River or Don’t Worry Be Happy, which were the two songs the fish were originally programmed to play. The club actually got a computer expert to dissect all the fish, rewire them and then connect them altogether so that they can be choreographed to sing popular songs. Right now, they’re playlist is kind of short–just Choices from E-40, Once In a Lifetime by the Talking Heads and Stayin’ Alive by the Bee Gees, but there will be more as time goes on.

They’re all installed on single stairway wall and are motion activated when people go up or down. Check out the story above and then try not to imagine what a Big Mouth Billy Bass dissection would look like.
