Hey Kevin,

Thanks for posting this and editing out the first few minutes. If you watch closely, try turning off the sound, you'll find that this is not only a great cigar box guitar routine, but a juggling routine as well. WC is know for, if not being the first to juggle cigar boxes, the greatest inovator of the art. You can find some vids on youtube of him. That's where I finally found this excerpt from "Poppy".
Here is a vid of W C Field using cigar boxes in a non-musical way, but it is amazing.
