They say that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
Without further ado, an actual record made from a tortilla playing "The Mexican Hat Dance" also known as "Jarabe Tapatío".
Why do this?
A while ago there was a satirical video featuring a tortilla jammed on top of a record player spindle.
In a way, it mocks the emerging trend and resurgence of vinyl and Record Store Day's tendency to release limited-run, colored records which are often resold for a much higher price by scalpers.
The video went viral and I wanted to see if I could actually make a tortilla record work without merely piping in some music in the background.
I was already familiar with cutting records on acrylic with a laser cutter for use in mechanical gramophones at 78 rpm, outlined in my instructable here.
It was in turn, modified from Amanda Ghassaei's instructable which was intended for 33 and 45 rpm on wood, paper, and acrylic.
