It got posted to Reddit a couple of days ago, and absolutely blew up.

As Katriona Dean, who shot the video, explains: "Apologies for the shaky video, I didn't have time to use a tripod or set up my camera."

It's her street piano, which she designed/painted for the "Keys to our Town" art initiative in Cobourg, Ontario.

But who's the guy playing the piano? His name is Michael Anthony McNamara, and he's 59 years old.

All of a sudden he's an internet star.

And quite right too, because he's got that really cool Johnny Cash timbre and he rules.
