How Deep is Your Lint? Bee Gees as Appliantologists

Recommended Posts

Last week we had several dryer repairs that had extreme lint buildup. One had caught on fire. One customer actually kept her vent pristine but had never cleaned the inside of the dryer. Anyhow, this morning I decided what better way to get the message across then to write a song (big surprise). But this time I also made a slide presentation.


How Deep is Your Lint? or Dyer Fire ie Bee Gees as Appliantologists

I believe that you
Don't want your doors to be charcoal
Or see the light from a fire in the darkest hour
Nor want your house to fall
And you may not think we care for you
When you know down inside
That we really do

Then it's time for you to show
How deep is your lint
How deep is your lint
You really need to know
Because your dryer is a major tool
That'll burn your house down
When it should always be lint free
If you love your family.

How deep is your lint?

Yeah, probably does not need to be unlisted. I usually mark a video unlisted as many times the video might only make sense within the context of appliantology otherwise a casual youtube searcher would see it and have no earthly idea what it's about. I guess this one is general enough. Previously, I had accidentally marked the video "private."

Very nice montage, as they say in Santa Monica. The guitarist in the audio is good! Is that you?
