I’m sure you’ve heard of Chat Roulette by now, but if not, it is this site where you randomly and anonymously connect to strangers for video chat. This simple concept leads primarily to perversion, but also creates an entirely new way to interact with people. For those more socially or creatively inclined, these new outlets and restrictions can lead to amazingly entertaining results. Case in point, this talented musician improving songs to what he sees when he gets connected. Simply the best use of Chat Roulette I’ve seen yet, and clearly the perfect reason to support its continued open existence. Please enjoy Chat Roulette Funny Piano Improv #1 and hope there are many more like it.
