Rumble ‘Twas a few nights before Christmas and all through the street, Not a creature was stirring except this piano geek;
The lights were all hung on the houses with care, In hopes that Jon wouldn’t play piano there;

The people were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of cello music danced in their heads;
And Paul in his t-shirt and Al in his boots had just settled down for an all night video shoot.

When out in the street arose such a clatter, People sprang from their beds to see what was the matter
Out the windows they watched, their phones they unlocked, was this a dream or should they call the cops?

Jon sprang from his bench, running fast as he could, As the neighborhood dogs barked (just as they should);
But we heard him exclaim, ere he ran out of sight, HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

The Piano Guys sacrificed a night of their lives to record this awe-inspiring video in Sandy, Utah. HALF A MILLION Christmas lights starred in the display, with 4,900 channels utilized to ensure that the entire spectrum of the piano’s keyboard was featured brilliantly.

A camera attached to a drone managed to capture the 46,000 watts of electricity that powered the the captivating Christmas spirit of these festive homes. Yes, the piano is actually being played and yes, the police actually showed up. The Piano Guys are thanking them for the Christmas kindness.
