the ‘guitar pee’ urinal lets male bathroom-goers create their own live rock solos

the ‘guitar pee’ urinal lets bathroom-goers play their own music solos as they relieve themselves: the guitar-shaped urinal is complete with sensor-mounted ‘strings’ that each play a different note via a connected speaker. installed in several bars in são paolo, the project was developed by brazilian ad agency almapBBDO for billboard music brasil.

upon flushing, a number appears on a board below the amplifier. by going to on their mobile devices, users can download the ‘MPEE3’ of their solo.
