The musical street cleaner
The street cleaner here is a big tanker truck that blasts fat jets of water sideways to keep the streets clean. It also blares music, ala the ice cream truck back home, to warn unsuspecting pedestrians and cyclists, lest they get washed to the curb along with the debris. Inexplicably, one of the tunes they play is Happy Birthday to You.
