Mario Balotelli plays Italian national anthem to Andrea Pirlo... on the piano (Video)

Balotelli on the piano

Is there nothing Mario Balotelli can’t do?

Watch on in amazement as the AC Milan striker appears to sit down and tickle the ivory with national team and Juventus captain Andrea Pirlo standing over him.

In quite a surreal video, all of the anger and frustration we usually see plastered across Balotelli’s face has vanished. He plays the part of an expert pianist superbly, playing the national anthem in serene silence whilst wearing sweatpants at the piano.

Sit down, turn off the TV and listen to “Il Canto degli Italiani” played beautifully by the eccentric 22-year-old forward.

Ladies and gentleman, please welcome Mr. Balotelli to the stage... Or is it Balotelli? Look at the open jacket at 0:19 seconds of the video. This could be fake. What do you think?

Regardless, a must watch.
