Here’s Mario Balotelli playing the Italian national anthem on a piano while Andrea Pirlo watches

This appears to be an amateur video of Mario Balotelli playing the Italian national anthem on a piano accompanied by the silent gravitas of Andrea Pirlo's gaze, but according to 101 Great Goals, it might be an attempt at a viral hoax from a Chinese advertising firm (selling pianos?). Whether it's really Mario playing or not, this is a work of genius. It's also a bit reminiscent of our "Random Acts of Kindness with: Mario Balotelli" series.

Anyway, the video is real to me. As is the single tear I imagine rolling down Pirlo's cheek as Mario plays.
