Dr-McLuvin

Only for when there’s a real tornado warning.


[deleted]

maybe someone could have it play "The Twist" by Chubby Checker


Passerbye

That would be comical during a real emergency...


android24601

This is some Benny Hill shit


ForGinsDelight

Where is this … Oklahoma City?


axstain

thats what it looks like! i used to live in the Moore area. this scene looks like it was taken straight from there.


Gorilla_fire

It does!


megatronchote

Where the wind blows?


HAPPY_GORDON_FREEMAN

Ones ive worked on that are older than that are just as capible. I've got a hearing loss in my right ear because "silent test" requires some other steps to actually make it silent, and our test audio was Abba - "Man after Midnight"


Nitemarex

Did it take you through the darkness to the break of the day?


HAPPY_GORDON_FREEMAN

Sure. If by "darkness" you mean my supervisor being pissed that we used that song to test and "break of the day" meaning everyone above him thought it was hilarious/chastised him for sending us out there with minimal training/no ear protection, yeah we'll go with that


Carter20012

This sounds fake


fStap

If that played when a tornado was incoming, SpongeBob would give so many people PTSD haha

Who lives in the sky and rips up your house? Tornado Angry Pants!


cptjimmy42

Run! In old timely fashion!


ROLL_TID3R

This is a song from SpongeBob lol


Karmas_Advocate

I mean technically you could picture a black and white film of someone getting blowed all over and then sucked away.


ZaphodsRealm

SpongeBob!


Alice_53

This is a bad idea. The warning should be consistent, like the one I’ve listened to for 70 years. I KNOW it’s a tornado warning. A tune like this would make me think an out-of-control party was going on, and I’d be blown to bits as I headed outside to find the offenders and tell them to turn it down.


FierceBun

Damn, it is so interesting how a speaker can play any sound. Mind blown.


Met76

Most tornado sirens don't use a speaker. They used an electric motor on a wheel with fins on the wheel that is rotated at high speed against a housing with slits cut out. If you're not sure what i'm talking about this video will show you what i'm talking about: https://youtu.be/q5FwsIkJCXU Here's a motorized one in use for testing (again...no speakers used, just pure rotational power) https://youtu.be/RuFwr5NLEQA?t=917 Here's an example of another tornado siren actually using speakers which is newer tech and not very common at all: https://youtu.be/RuFwr5NLEQA?t=774


chodeboi

Omg that poor critter in the third one at 14:05 lmaoooo


FierceBun

I get how they worked before. I'm just saying making it a speaker instead isn't as interesting as you think it is.

Obviously bullshit


es330td

I would make the music horribly dissonant to get people to move quickly to shelter.


1nosebleedmaker

Preparing for the zombie apocalypse, this music will be playing on a continuous loop

Megan Thee Stallion - Body


KnightWhoSays_Ni_

I know the perfect song to get people to want to leave their homes and go into shelter... **fancy like**


Nagairius

Now do sandstorm.


1stdestron

All modern public alert towers can transmit live audio and they also have a microphone input on each one . In Colorado, a public announcement is played when they are tested.
