In terms of American cinematic values, there’s only one thing lacking in the amazing “Cups” scene in the 2013 flick Pitch Perfect, where Anna Kendrick’s server leads a restaurant in an impromptu percussive cutlery routine.

Guns. Nobody shoots anything!

Thankfully, that’s finally been rectified by a man named Jim Huish, who has recreated the scene using considerable knowledge of his handgun’s anatomy and an utter disregard for the sanctity of plastic cups and snowy hillsides.

Don’t worry: Huish’s pipes aren’t going to waste. He heads the Nashville-based band Amber’s Drive, which according to the band’s Facebook page, sounds like “The Backstreet Boys meets Mumford and Sons.”

I’m no gun nut, but when they put it like that, I’d rather just listen to them shoot things.
