We’ve seen lots of Rube Goldberg videos submitted to MAMA, but this could be one of the most complex and creative we’ve seen.

It’s actually a music video for A-Trak & Tommy Trash “Tuna Melt”. How many takes I wonder? Rube Goldberg would have loved it. OK, let’s get to the fun part and watch. The goal? A tuna melt.

Cheaters? A true Rube Goldberg video has no break in the sequence. Although there were a couple of edits, it was still fun.

Reuben Garret Lucius Goldberg (4 July 1883 – 7 December 1970) was an American cartoonist who received a 1948 Pulitzer Prize for his political cartooning. He is best known for his series of popular cartoons depicting Rube Goldberg machines, complex devices that perform simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways. The Reuben Award of the National Cartoonists Society is named in his honor. In addition, there are several contests around the world known as Rube Goldberg contests which challenge high school students to make a complex machine to perform a simple task.
