Britain recently unveiled its new five-pound notes, and their stiffness was so intriguing that a couple of citizens tested and successfully used them to play vinyl. Composed of polymer — a more environmentally friendly material — the corners are sturdy and sharp enough that with the help of a small microphone and amplifier, they serve as relatively adequate record needles.

Doubling as a vinyl player might be one of the few redeeming qualities of the new bills, which are incapable of folding into a wallet or being used in a vending machine. Watch a video of one playing ABBA’s classic, “Money, Money, Money” above. Learn more about the new five-pound note here.
