Yeah, I stuck with it all the way through the annoying non-removable pop up for the next video that completely covered the view of the guy doing the playing. :stuck_out_tongue:

Is he really a ghost?

Or does it turn out the glass of water he leaves on the top of the piano is deadly to alien invaders/ possible demons?

Or is his piano teacher a supervillain?

Or…

I figured he was playing without being able to see the keys as he was feeling for the correct placement at one point… I didn’t guess that that was how he was doing it though

Apparently Freddie Mercury had his bed by a piano like this, so he could reach up and play if he had an idea for a melody in bed

Punchline obscured by poor execution of vertical video plus annoying YouTube popup.

Had to watch twice because I noticed his hands were still lined up right (pinkies to the outside). You can barely see at the end that his arms were crossed over. I would have been more impressed if his hands were on backwards.

I was hoping they were mounted on some kind of animatronic assembly.

The twist was no surprise…from the get go you could see it was filmed in vertical mode. fucking monster.

At first I thought he was playing with L for R, R for L. But his hands are crossed. He’s cheating.

Was anyone else briefly confused/perturbed by the blurred-out fleshy bit on top of the seat?

No? Just me then.

Unnecessary Censorship?

I was hoping for a second twist where the pianist explains to the person filming that if they can play the piano like that, an average person could easily turn their phone on it’s side.

…or that the piano was on the wall and the video was in landscape all along?

I have watched enough of The Piano Guys to know where it was going.
