During lockdown I was watching a lot of random videos, like this one about tacos:

I've been trying to identify the outro song starting around 5:53, but have been unsuccessful.

Can anyone help me out? Thanks a lot!

    Good find. Once you hear the whole piece, you can tell it's mock-Vivaldi. There are those trills that sound like the Four Seasons, but are just slightly too dissonant to be actually baroque. // It always amazes me how well many of these library composers write. I don't know if it's impressive or depressing. Dec 9 '20 at 21:59
  • @Chris Sunami supports Monica Indeed, I wish talented composers like this would focus their efforts on more progressive ideas rather than mimicking 300+ year old standards.
