When members of the Ku Klux Klan marched to keep the Confederate flag flying in South Carolina on Saturday, a clever objector came up with a priceless and highly effective form of protest, which was captured on video and immediately went viral. Good show, sousaphone man.

The Charleston City Paper tracked down the musician in question, one Matt Buck, who told the news outlet he was pondering how to protest the KKK march and “that was my way of doing it.”

Buck’s choices for his musical score ranged from the “Family Guy” to Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries,” and from the footage, it seems the marchers were aware of their soundtrack but somewhat unsure what, if anything, to do about it. Have a look at the clip below (via YouTube):
