ChatRoulette Piano Improv Featuring Merton and Ben Folds

Right now there is a new internet phenomenon going around, and it is ChatRoulette.  ChatRoulette is a website that pairs you with a random stranger to video chat with. Unfortunately, it is usually filled with guys trying to show girls their penises. Luckily, there are people who use it for less nefarious purposes.  Take Merton for example, he dressed up in his hoodie one day and serenaded the people he found on ChatRoulette.  He did such a good job that Ben Folds gave a shout out by doing the same thing at one of his shows. The two are actually remarkably similar, but Merton is not Ben Folds, but I’m thinking they need to go on tour together.

Check out Merton:

Now to Ben Folds:

What do you guys think? Pretty talented right? I’ve been a huge Ben Folds fan for a while now (I’ve even seen him 7 times now), and it is cool to see him do stuff like this. Hopefully, he can help Meton get a leg up on a career in the music business.
