If you listen closely to a rock, does it sound like John Denver?

YouTube continues to be a fount of John Denver tributes. But few are odder than the one viewable above, in which the guy on the left hears the ocean in a shell, while his buddy holds a crystallized rock to his head and hears... "Leaving on a Jet Plane." Sorry, Denver fantatics: Don't know when he'll be back again.
