Congratulations Ben Folds!

Because you win at life.

I'm sure by now you will have heard of ChatRoulette. If you haven't, it's a rather silly and pointless exercise where people activate their web-cams and video-chat to random strangers. As with all of these things, the dregs of society have swiftly crawled all over it, with their favourite "joke" being to sit in front of their cameras stark bollock naked. Actually, that reminds me of that Bree Olsen live feed I was watching the other night...

Anyway. One particular chap, known only as Merton, decided to do something an ickle bit different. Armed with a piano and a hint of strong language, he opted to free-style, musically!

That video has got pretty famous pretty damn quick, leading the splendid Ben Folds to do his own version at a concert he was hosting the other night at the Fillmore:

Splendid stuff all round. Although it wouldn't surprise me if Ben was actually Merton...

  1. I have not heard of ChatRoulette - It sounds like a way to meet lots of ghastly perverts!
