This guy turned a tortilla into a record that actually plays music

After seeing that funny video go viral of a tortilla fake-playing music on a record player, a Redditor decided to see if he could really turn a tortilla into a disc that plays music. He says it took half an hour to laser-etch the grooves on, and he had to experiment with various tortillas (pro tip: cooked ones aren't flat enough). He cautions they're going to get pretty inedible ("rather burnt"), but he succeeded in getting music to come out of an actual tortilla. The tune of choice is "Jarabe Tapatío," of course, better known as "The Mexican Hat Dance," and, okay, it sounds awful.
