Everyone has a friend with a piano in the living room. And even though you never learned how to play (or forgot every one of those childhood lessons your parents spent a fortune on), you still want to tickle the ivories. A new YouTube video that tells you how to play the piano without actually knowing how to play the piano is both funny and ingenious.

Nintendo nerds will probably be upset over this one: We almost got a “Legend of Zelda” movie, but Nintendo didn’t approve it. The company behind films such as “TMNT” and “Astro Boy” got as far as making test animation footage, and that video has finally made it online. Zelda fans will be happy (but also sorta sad since the movie’s never happening).
