Murray is playing guitar and Jeff is playing keyboard. They're going to paint a circus picture. What music will they need for clowns. As they play clown music, the clowns appear. What else they need? Trapeze artists. Let's all say "trapeze." Murray plays a sliding tune on his guitar and the trapeze artists appear. What else do they need. A ringmaster! Jeff plays circus music and a ringmaster is drawn in. Murray thanks everyone for painting the picture.
