Ben Folds indulges in a bit of live ChatRoulette fun...

Depending on the amount of time you spend online, and specifically YouTube and that maker-and-breaker of overnight YouTube sensations Twitter, you may be completely familiar with "Merton's" fun, warm and witty take on ChatRoulette - the site where one user chats live with another chosen at complete random - or, you might be completely unaware of it. If you're in the latter camp, catch up here...



[EDIT: Merton's video was down for a while there but should be fine now!]

Thanks to Merton's playing style, sense of humour and kick-ass specs, there's been a rumour that he's in fact Ben Folds; though you just have to listen to his voice to come to the conclusion that, well, he's definitely not. News of the rumour must have reached old Benny though, so at a recent show in his near-home-town of Charlotte, North Carolina, he did a bit of ChatRoulette piano improv himself. Course he did. Cos he's ACE. Take a look:

I'd not seen these before, they're ace! But I still think ChatRoulette is one step too far for me!

Ben Folds sounds great singing anything. I'm glad you posted these up, I would have forgotten about them after a short while. So, thanks. : )
