Merton the "Chatroulette Piano Guy" to do T-Mobile Adverts in the UK

Merton – the YouTube video sensation that was made famous by his musical improvisation on Chatroulette – is now in the UK, and will be filming a series of videos for T-Mobile to be used as television adverts.

T-Mobile’s recent foray into viral advertising was the “Welcome Back” they filmed at Heathrow Terminal 5 in October, in which unsuspecting airline passengers were greeted with singing and dancing from people waiting in arrivals. Prior to that T-Mobile also did the highly successful T-Mobile Dance and last year’s sing-along in Trafalger Square.

Eyecandy Tweeted yesterday about Merton (aka the “Chatroulette Piano Guy”) being due to appear at Heathrow Terminal 5 on Wednesday (today), and then Merton himself also later Tweeted saying:

I’m in London, about to do a film project with T-Mobile in which I play a grand piano and sing to passengers at airports around the UK.

UPDATE – Thanks to close-up magician Andi Gladwin, we now have a short video and couple of pictures of Merton at Gatwick Airport yesterday:
