Chat Roulette - The Musical

Over the last couple of weeks, a certain breed of internet denizen has gone bonkers for Chat Roulette.

The idea is that the site connects you to a completely random person, anywhere in the world, by webcam. It is fuelled by a "skip" button, that allows you to screen out anyone boring / ugly / naked until you chance across a stranger who doesn't make you shudder with contempt.

Or, as Jon Stewart put it: "This is an internet site that will very quickly become a repository of 5% curiosity seekers and 95% free floating dongs."

Here's a (safe for work) video explainer:

So far, so depressing. But piano genius Merton has used the site to deliver something truly amazing - an impromptu, imrpovised musical, based on the people he meets online. Best video of the week.
