High Speed Film of Embouchures (don't eat while watching)

I've heard about these movies for years but had never seen them. Interesting...and a little disgusting.

Basically, the films show high speed images of the lips vibrating as seen through a clear mouthpiece. Some big name players including Bill Watrous, Stuart Dempster, Larry Wiehe and George Roberts.

Thanks for David Wilken for getting this up onto YouTube.
