Portland Absurdity of the Day: Unicycler Plays Star Wars Theme On Flaming Bagpipes

Brian Kidd, also known as "the Unipiper," is a local celebrity in Portland. He's famous for something ridiculous -- riding around town on his unicycle while playing the bagpipes. In March 2012, Kidd posted a video of himself dressed as Darth Vader from Star Wars, unicycling while playing the Star Wars theme. And now he’s back -- with fire.

Seen here riding with flaming bagpipes in front of a mural that reads, "Keep Portland Weird," the Unipiper is pushing the limits of the city’s unofficial motto.
