The cdza 'Pianists in Paris' Production Is Musically Brilliant

The cdza 'Pianists in Paris' video is a brilliant concoction of theatrics and talent that follows on the astronomically popular masterpiece -- a five-person-one-guitar cover of 'Somebody's I Used To Know' by Walk Off The Earth.

Historically, creative musical performances have had very good chances of going viral on YouTube (it seems the public never ceases to tire of joint-effort created sounds). This video features an instrumental rendition of Jay-Z's 'Nigg*s in Paris,' with six men finding ways to make use of a single piano. The 'cdza' channel rolls out a new video every fortnight, featuring novel performances each time, like the hilarious 'Zuckerberg: The Musical,' in similar fashion to Walk Off The Earth.

With a hot song, killer musicians and a cool concept, this is the perfect recipe for a viral video.
