Well, I’d like to see you play the piano with your toes! How typical of the able-bodied to put down a truly inspirational performance by someone who has risen above the challenges that his disabilities present. I doubt there are many here that would do the same. I wish him all the best with his career and his life and hope he doesn’t have to suffer from too much prejudice and negativity from the able-bodied but very small-minded community.

And here I am proud of the fact that I can pick up a pencil with my toes! But it’s great that he was able to continue to do something that he loves!

so inspiring & brave- i don’t know if i would be courageous to live after an accident like that… what a spirit.

I salute this man for making his life meaningful and an inspiration to others. He may continue to pursue his dreams and do not let others fail him. He loses only his hands but the talent lives on.

I am definitely going to learn to play the piano now. My grandma tried to teach me when I was younger but I was too lazy to put in any real effort and learn. Now, she’s passed away and I wish I had learned from her, but seeing this guy without any arms playing so well makes me want to go and learn for real now.

what an amazing person. He plays wonderfully with his toes!!

Such a beautiful human being. Those negative comments should be ashamed yourself.

Better dead than this way. How does he have sex (if he does)? How does he take a piss? Theres nothing inspirational in this, absolutely nothing. Mabe for the religious nuts and total idiots. Would u sleep with his such a guy? Would u take care of him like u would of a little baby? Oh, isnt he cute when he eats with his feet? Cretins…. I hope he wont live that long, hes a burden to everyone including himself. This is the truth, stop painting it pink.

Um, yeah… I’m a chick, and I’d do him. XD;;; He’s cute!

As for the HOW of it… WELL, LET’S SEE… A girl could be on top, or doggie style would work JUST FINE.

There are many ways to overcome such things, you just have to be creative. ;)


I pity anyone who has to know you in real life.

wow such thoughts ! you must be horrible in real life !

Some of you are such sick puppies. I applaud this guy. He’s made a plus out of what most would deem a minus. Great stuff.

Hate to burst people’s bubble here, but this is fake; not the part of him being armless( which is truly unfortunate) but the actual piano playing….I have been playing for 15 years and I can tell you that the notes to the song and where his toes hit the keys and when they hit the keys DO NOT match at all…I’m pretty sure some might give me a thumbs down but its cool…I understand that ignorance is bliss….

perfect control in his feet

Wow, makes me feel bad not doing something useful when I don’t have the same handicaps as he does.

@XYZ: Why would he be a burden? You know nothing about real love. dont you?
