There's no denying it, this is a clear case of yellow journalism.

Billboard Brasil has created a new musically interactive urinal that strums guitar chords while someone goes to the bathroom. The Guitar Pee is designed to look like an actual electric guitar and plays a unique set of notes with each use.

In fact, it even records your musical output. CNET reports that once you've flushed, the urinal generates a personalized number, allowing listeners to stream the user-generated content from the Guitar Pee website.

The novelty instrument apparently was created as a tie-in with the company's marketing slogan, "Music. We know it comes from everywhere," and will be featured in bars across San Paolo.

The Guitar Pee is actually not the first attempt to create a more interactive bathroom experience.

In April, Sega Games unveiled the Toylet, a urinal that offers users a video game distraction while going to the bathroom. The Toylet isn't cheap, reportedly costing $1,748 for each urinal and more than $100 for each individual game."

While it's technically not quite as portable, we're guessing most gamers will stick with their Nintendo Wii.
