Push It!

Earlier today, Alex Couper presented me with a challenge on a captainhook issue:
I want to play "push it" by salt n pepa on every push.

If you are using a sufficiently recent version of git (i.e. one which supports the pre-push hook) and have youtube-dl, mplayer and curl installed, then dropping this in to .git/hooks/pre-push for a repo will play Push It (in its entirety) on every push:

curl -s "$(youtube-dl -g\?v\=vCadcBR95oU)" | mplayer -really-quiet -cache 8192 -vo null - > /dev/null 2>&1 &
