Undercover Busker

One of my friends sent me this great article from the Washington Post. It turns out, Joshua Bell, virtuoso violinist by day, asleep by night, decided to busk one morning in a DC rush-hour to see what would happen. Check it out.

And here’s the article from which this post came. Oh, and here’s the article in Terrence Tao’s blog which pointed Steve at the WP article. Oh and here’s another similar experiment with abstract art instead of a violin. Well I guess I might as well embed the video (complete with plinky plonky piano music so that you know it’s deep). See if you can spot the subterreanian moral gravitas.
