(Newser) New York weighs in on the day's hottest Internet mystery: Is the Chatroulette piano guy/YouTube-viral-video star actually Ben Folds? As Stephen Johnson points out on G4, “He sings like Ben Folds. He plays piano like Ben Folds. He looks like Ben Folds.” Adds Lindsay Robertson, “anyone who can play like that would probably already be famous, and everyone we know over the age of 25 thought of Ben Folds immediately when they first saw the video.” Judge for yourself in the gallery.
