Video: The ten best impromptu painted piano performances from the 16th Street Mall

I was down on 16th Street mall recently around lunch time, and I couldn't get over how many freaking people are down there these days. I used to work a few blocks from the mall -- of course this was eons ago when the streets were still lined with buggies and Washington was still in office -- and it was nothing like this. Can't imagine having to navigate the sweaty masses every day now. Could easily see a dude coming unhinged and going all Michael Douglas Falling Down or something.
