Lots of speculations regarding the synthesizer used here but it seems that it was made on a Yamaha CS80

Two words I have to say about this: Pure. Genius. I have absolutely never heard anything more ridiculous than this song in my life. It's so bad yet so catchy. One of those songs you don't want to admit you secretly like, yet it is so excruciatingly hilarious.

The synthesizer on this song only makes it all the more comedic. When parts of the song get too loud it almost sounds like the musicians couldn't even hear their own instruments so they started playing random notes. This is especially noticeable with the synthesizer, which almost seems like a 5-year old was let loose into the recording studio. In addition, the song has horrible production work which = Masterpiece.

You will not regret buying this!
