What is this thing? A bombarde or some kind of bagpipe?

And is it meant to sound like that, or did they just hand something they found in a museum to the sax player and say "we want a couple of breaks of wacky ethnic stuff"?

Sounds like a musette (de cour) but I guess it could be imitated on the accordion.
Dunno fer sure.

from the description on YouTube:

...le musette a toujours fait partie intégrante de la culture Française...

It sounds like a bagpipe (musette) to me.

what a charming, lively tune!

Bombarde came instantly to mind.

My Rog said it could even be a kazoo!

Leeneia, le musette is the name of the genre, not of an instrument typical for it (la musette). More precisely, we hear a valse-musette, differing in timing from other types of waltz. The accordion seems to be essential; melody instruments, if any, can vary.

In the Verchuren recording, I guess we hear la musette alright, also called cabrette. Intonation is a hazard, but in a different manner from a kazoo.

A cabrette it is, indeed. La cabrette is associated with Auvergne as le biniou is to Brittany!

Sounds a bit like "I Belong To Glasgow". But on a happy day.

Auldtimer, not quite wrong: like the British music halls, the musette bands were/are somewhere in between folklore and entertainment business, often frowned upon for lack of taste. The squeaky bagpipe can be viewed as a fig leaf of genuine folklore in front of Verchuren's grand well-tempered accordion machine.
