That's the challenge that Swedish group Wintergatan managed to meet with magnificence. The machine, which includes up to 3,000 different parts, took more than 14 months of preparation according to band member Martin Molin.

With over 10 million views on YouTube, it's fair to say that the effort was probably worth it. Why invest a fortune on advertising campaigns when all you need is a very, very big bag of marbles ... and tons of talent.
