Playing a sweet potato made of broccoli

OK, let me explain. My family wasn't particularly musical. None of my siblings took music lessons and neither of my parents played an instrument--with one exception: My father played the sweet potato. The sweet potato is a small wind instrument also known as an ocarina. As you can see in the photo, an ocarina somewhat resembles a sweet potato.

So now that I have you up to speed, here is a video of a Japanese fellow who has taken a large stalk of broccoli and carved it into a sweet potato. The sound is remarkably good.
