Who says you need a fancy instrument to make music? In a recent video from Kurt Hugo Schneider and Kina Grannis, the pair covers Justin Timberlake's "Say Something" using various kitchen appliances and tools as instruments. 

This isn't the first time that Schneider has done this: in 2016, he and Grannis covered Sia's "Cheap Thrills" using a bicycle. In 2017, the pair used water bottles, cups, pens, and tables to take on Alessia Cara And Zedd's "Stay."

Now, Schneider's "Say Something" cover features Grannis singing vocals and playing the guitar while other objects contribute to the overall sound. This includes Schneider slamming a microwave, cutting food, tapping a cardboard box, and hitting forks against a glass plate. He also turns a faucet on and off, opens and shuts a utensil drawer, and knocks on a refrigerator. 

"Who knew the things in your kitchen could be so musical?" Schneider captions the performance uploaded to YouTube.

"Is there anything you cant make music with?! This is amazing," one viewer comments on the video.

"My mind is honestly blown right now. You are a wizard," another adds.

We're not sure if Timberlake's seen Schneider and Grannis' cover, but we think he'd approve. Check it out for yourself below:
