    Piano Bar: Teen explains origins of mystery piano

    When I saw the original video of this piano, being an "artist" myself, I became really inspired.
    There are two trying to claim the authentication of placing this piano 600 ft from the shore in FL. The video goes into detail about how many have used this piece in their own work, even a photographer from National Geographic - and the picture was published.

    Whomever placed it, when they get down to who really did it, could face a felony charge. Sort of a shame at how the community reacted to it, but the law is the law.

    [This is my first post ever, so if I did anything wrong please msg me to fix it. Just thought this story could bring a smile to some faces, or at least the convo if they (whomever it was) should be charged, or not.]

    I have been following the mysterious piano story this week. It lighted up an otherwise awful news week. TY for clearing up the who and the how and the why.

    I appreciate the absurdism, too, Sherbet. It's understandable that most folks would consider it an irresponsible and foolish act, but it's that kind of ingenuity that sometimes leads to great endeavors. Time will tell.
