DJ Blowfelt plays record with £5 note

How he thought of the idea in the first place, we're not exactly sure...

The brand new polymer £5 note is designed to be more durable than regular notes, and not only that, but it's got a very unexpected use.

It can also play vinyl records as DJ Blowfelt discovered. He gave his own song a spin on a record player, using the brand new note as the needle.

And it got people very interested because his Youtube video has now had over 70,000 views.

This gives you a great excuse to dig out all those old records, grab a new fiver and play that funky music!
