'Magical piano' surprises commuters


'Magical Piano' Surprises Commuters At Chicago's Union Station
Rob Bliss Creative teamed up with Amtrak to bring a little magic to Chicago's Union Station. They set up and filmed a 'magical piano' that played by itself and appeared to react to its surroundings.

For example, when a young girl sat down to play 'Chopsticks,' the piano joined her in a duet. Musician Andrew Blendermann was watching and listening from a remote control room where he controlled the piano.

Some of the people featured in the video were actors, but the video was still very magical.

Loved it when Santa told the piano to be quieter and it actually did....until he'd moved away a bit!

I love it! How magical! I wish I had been there to see the piano and the people whom it joined in playing duets! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! (I don't care if a lot of it is rigged! as long as it seems magical, that's all that counts!

Who cares? that was really good. People always complains about something. We all need something to smile about these days

I would laud the person/companies who block cell phone use in public places. The piano idea was wonderful. We need a little magic in our lives, and fun. Thank you.

Lets see, anywhere that is not a person home would be considered a public place. So what you are proposing would only allow a person to use there cell phone when at home. Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of having a cell phone to start with?

I spoke to AOL, and they said they're going to take down the ads that allow them to stay in business so that you can watch a video without having to wait 30 seconds first. You're welcome.

I just turn off the sound, go down and read the text........this business of having a good looking talking head is ridiculous.....either show the video or leave it off.
