How to be delayed at Pearson airport in style (video)

If you're in the Toronto-based Lemon Bucket Orkestra, you break out the instruments and start an impromptu gig. This video posted to YouTube today shows the self-described Balkan/Gypsy/Klezmer band entertaining anxious passengers on board a delayed Air Canada flight from Pearson to Bucharest, Romania.

I'm not sure how the band managed to get a trombone, sax, violin, clarinet, accordion and several other instruments into the cabin when I can't bring on a tube of toothpaste, but who cares. Air Canada should make sure all delays play out like this.
