There is not much to add to this headline. Again, it’s Ricky Rubio on a Spanish TV station playing Connect Four and a giant piano … using basketballs. Just watch the videos, OK?
Related Wikipedia Fun Fact No. 1: “Connect Four is also known as Captain’s Mistress, Four Up, Plot Four, Find Four, Fourplay, Four in a Row and Four in a Line.” CAPTAIN’S MISTRESS!
Related Wikipedia Fun Fact No. 2: That song in the Piano segment, you’ve heard it before. It’s called “The Entertainer” and it is “a 1902 classic piano rag written by Scott Joplin. One of the classics of ragtime, it returned to top international prominence as part of the ragtime revival in the 1970s, when it was used as the theme music for the 1973 Oscar-winning film, The Sting.”
