    Default Merton at Ren Cen

    So a YouTube personality named Merton is performing at the base of the escalator to the food court at the Ren Cen today. He is playing piano and singing improvisationally about people coming down the escalator. Everyone has a big smile when they figure out what he is up to. Any idea who is behind this random act of culture?

    Was it "Sax Man"? Was he bare chested, wearing suspenders and sun glasses and did he have a mustache? Did he play that "sexy" sax melody from the 1980s over and over?

    Didn't get a chance to go down to the foodcourt to see if he was barechested and in suspenders, but there was definately someone down there playing some 80's music over and over.
    That dude doesn't know any other songs?
