Comedy experiment: Does ‘Yakety Sax’ make everything funny?

I am posting this YouTube video with the understanding that many people will automatically find it distasteful. It’s an interesting exercise in comedy, however, because it asks this question: Can “Yakety Sax” (the Benny Hill theme music; you’ll recognize it when you hear it) make anything funny? Watch the video and see for yourself.


The reason part of it doesn’t work for me is that many parts of the video are in slow-motion (or at least the events in them happen slowly). For “Yakety Sax” to achieve its full comedic impact, it must be accompanied by sped-up visuals. The parts of the video that are sped-up do indeed make me laugh. But not because I’m heartless or jaded! It’s the music! I’m powerless against the music!
