Player Piano Painted as Beer Can
By Jim Jelinek
Many years ago I was doing a service call here in Illinois and,
upon arriving in the customer's basement, I beheld the largest
can of Budweiser beer ever seen in a basement. The entire piano
was done up as a large Budweiser with every detail and all the
script just like the famous can.
They told me that they saw a player on TV that was part of a Bud
commercial so they wrote to Budweiser and were able to obtain all
the materials to do the same job on their player. At first sight
I was rather taken back, but the darn thing grew on me after awhile.
I learned that the piano was up for sale a couple of years ago and
it found a home pretty fast.
