VIDEO: Ben Folds Can Cover

If you're not familiar with the musical stylings of Ben Folds (or that of his Five, which is actually a three...), I'd encourage you to give him a shot. Not all his stuff works for me, but what I do like I enjoy a lot. But even with his extensive body of original work, it turns out some of the best stuff I've heard from him are his covers. Here's some video of those perfectly-imitated moments:

Make sure and check out the found-objects instruments those drummers are playing. A postal box with a towel over it? A champagne glass? And there's even an appearance by a music player not named iPod™? Amazing.

Extra points for the glasses.
