Thanks to Insight for posting the link, but we had been able to find the vid posted on the front page of cletus' YT channel.
This is really cool, cletus, nice find! For the sake of a bump, and in the hope that more will take a look, we'll try to post the vid right on the thread. Sometimes that works for us, sometimes it doesn't.

Very cool video! Thanks for posting about it. It's impressive that the instrument of choice of the first human on the moon was an ukulele. I wonder if little was made of his ukulele playing while he was in isolation after his Apollo at the time because it happened (July and August, 1969) in the wake of Tiny Tim's obliteration of the ukulele's reputation as a serious instrument. Armstrong lost the tip of his ring finger in an accident several years ago and had it reattached through microsurgery. I wonder if he still plays the ukulele.

Did he eat chicken in a can while playing the uke?
