Over the weekend, Nintendo continued posting new videos of new Wii Music instruments. Above, the accordion, which is like Thor's hammer Mjolnir, but for Weird Al. Only the worthy can pick up the accordion, but those who can wield it are transformed instantly into Weird Al Yankovic. Due to technical and licensing constraints, only the sound-producing capabilities of the accordion are reproduced in Wii Music.

After the break, videos featuring simulated taiko, clarinet, and conga drums. We think that of all the instruments, the ones involving drumming look silliest when there's no actual instruments. The model just kind of punches the air like one of those action figures whose arms swing out when you squeeze their legs. But we must admit that Wii Music's taiko sounds pretty cool.
