    Australia (?).

    Titles read: "FINGERLESS PIANIST - Here's a really novel idea from 'down under' invented by an ingenious fellow who lost his fingers."

    M/S of two men at piano. One man plays briefly. The other man leans against piano, he clearly has a numerous fingers missing from his left hand. He tells the man that he can play a bit himself. The sat down one looks quite surprised given the state of his hand. The man pulls out a metal tube with prongs on it. He sits down and plays a piece of music with the aid of the device which he simply holds in hands whilst the prongs hit the correct keys.
