They are using a recording. The movements don't match the changes in pitch. Quite disappointed actually...

hehe

I think the guy in China's Got Talent who played with his toes is far more talented. Sorry I really find it gross. I am going out now....

I'd have been impressed on a musical level, but not an anatomical level, haha. Now if someone could play this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvELcETEtQg with their gentlemanly parts, I'd be interested smile.
