TORONTO – A video of a security guard playing the piano at the National Library of Parliament in Georgia has been viewed millions of times after a visitor secretly recorded him playing and shared the video widely.
The unidentified visitor records the burly security guard’s performance while standing behind him. The video ends shortly before the song does and, according to the YouTube video, he did not know he was being recorded and just “played very emotionally.”
The video was originally uploaded to YouTube named “You are more than a guard at the library” and provides a beautiful reminder not to judge people by their appearances.
It was shared widely by Georgian media and has since gone viral, being viewed over a million times and written about by media around the world.
The security guard, identified by Metro.co.uk, as Omar Tsereteli, is playing a rendition of Giorni Dispari by Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi, whose music has been used widely in commercials and films, including This is England and the French film The Intouchables.
