ChatRoulette Piano Man

First saw this on Cynical-C, but it’s been making the rounds lately.  Watch the entire thing, as the piano man is quite good with both comedic improv and playing the piano.

And so my question is, why is Ben Folds hanging out on ChatRoulette?  Right?  The voice, the glasses and even the playing style are all pretty much dead-ringers for Ben Folds. I mean, I guess he’s dropped his voice slightly and the hood obscures his face a bit, but this has to be him having a goof, right?

For comparisons sake:

Anyway, the lone video has been viewed nearly 375,000 times in four days, which means if it is Ben Folds, he’s had more success with this than with just about anything else he’s done.

    It's funny how Omegle is a spin-off of and ChatRoulette a spin-off of Omegle! I think deserves some respect, as it was the first. Create a facebook group and spread the truth, anyone?

    100% IS ben folds. He did this live at a show in charlotte last night (3.19.10). He said that it was his "first experiment at doing this live." There are a couple of cell phone clips floating around on youtube of parts of it.
