Do you remember the iconic scene from the movie “Big” wherein Tom Hanks and Robert Loggia play on the giant floor piano in the toy store? If you don’t then go ahead and watch it. It’s such a feel-good moment and truly an iconic one.
And it’s inspired others to do the same!
Alexander Dennis Volk, nicknamed Mister Piano, recreated that iconic scene with a partner of his own. Alexander Dennis and his partner were at the Top Shopping Mall in Bremen, Germany. The duo set up a giant floor piano of their own to pay homage to the iconic scene.
Alexander Dennis Volk, a.k.a. Mister Piano, is a German pianist. He has been described as:
“Mister Piano, real name Dennis Volk, has changed from a class clown to a creative exceptional entertainer on the piano. At the beginning of his career, he mainly played accompanying music for events – always with his own piano – so his tendency towards creativity, extravagance and visionary thinking soon became apparent. The shows and ideas that he has developed from this have brought him to various TV programs and are popular with organizers all over Europe.”
Es war ein großer Spaß bei Euch in Schwerin! Morgen Abend gebe ich bekannt, wer den 50€ bekommt. bis dahin postet noch…
Volk continues to be creative by dancing on his own walking piano for crowds! They just love it when Volk jumps onto the giant keys. He starts the performance solo as his partner with adorable piano key leggings waits for her turn.
The crowd is already entertained without the duet even starting!
The two play a perfect version of Heart and Soul without missing a key. It’s almost a dance as they play the classic song. Volk’s partner is also not the only one to match the dance floor. Mesmerizing, isn’t it?
Volk is dressed in black and white to match the piano keys too.
Volk and his partner jump off the keys. Volk gets the crowd to clap to the beat of the song, as he and his partner jump on the keys to play it again as if teasing their onlookers. He is an entertainer after all!
The crowd is loving the second recreation even more than the first time! And what’s not to love? It wouldn’t be surprising to find out if some of them began saving up for their own floor piano.
The video has been viewed over 5.6 million times!
One viewer stated,
“That was an amazing piano performance one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.”
While another viewer loved the fashion statement,
“Awe, this was so cute and of course we love her piano leggings and his matching black and white outfit.”
Fashion matters when you are putting on a performance. Volk and his partner were quite aware of that before they jumped on the keys to entertain a crowd. Volk and his partner are having fun and it shows!
Volk is known in Germany for this super fun act of his. So why not start it in your town? It might be worth the investment!
