Rowan Atkinson Miming Piano Playing at the Secret Policeman's Ball

Here's Rowan Atkinson (of Mr. Bean fame) at the 1979 Secret Policeman's Ball miming a mashed-up performance of Beethoven's Op. 13 and 27 Sonatas.

More pianists mugging for the camera:

    I don't usually like him, he has to much control over his out of control lips but he is really very funny here.
