2014's Hit Songs Sound Even Hotter With Pillows, Beer Bottles And Balloons

The best way to commemorate the top songs of 2014 is by banging a pair of shoes together -- just ask Andrew Huang.

The musician, also known for his "Jingle Bells" remix with office equipment and "99 Red Balloons" with actual red balloons, remixed some hit songs of 2014, including "Rather Be," "Happy," and "Shake It Off," with household items like pillows, shoes, beer bottles, rubber bands and balloons.

"I was invited to perform on German television last month where they wanted me to put together a similar year-end hits medley with found sounds, which included some German songs as well as their suggestions of 'Timber,' 'Happy,' and 'Prayer in C,'" Huang told The Huffington Post. "For the version for my channel, I wanted to replace the German songs with ones that were more internationally recognizable ... so I added 'Rather Be,' 'Shake It Off' and 'Bang Bang.'"

As for where he got his instruments, they're just about as random as they seem.

"I was staying at a friend's house in the Netherlands when I made this video ... so other than the balloon which I had with me because of this video, it's all his stuff," he continued. "I just looked around to see what I could use to recreate enough of the parts of each song so they would sound passable. Imitating drums is easy, you just need to hit stuff."
