Sia may not “need dollar bills to have fun tonight,” according to her hit song “Cheap Thrills,” but what she does need is this unexpected new cover of that track using a bicycle.


YouTube musician Kurt Hugo Schneider partnered with singer Kina Grannis to give an inventive take on the This Is Acting single, all played using a bicycle as a musical intrument. In the music video below, Grannis sits atop the single standard bike, belting out the catchy lyrics, while Schneider and his musical partner use drum sticks and the bike’s parts to create the supporting score.

The YouTuber has experimented musically in the past, including a cover of Zedd and Aloe Blacc’s “Candyman” — a reimagining of “The Candy Man Can” from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory — using 50,000 M&M’s.
