Video: Balotelli plays classical piano, serenades Pirlo with Italian national anthem

He may be many things, but if there was one thing that we'd never accuse Mario Balotelli of it would probably be that he spends his down time sneaking off to conservatoires and moonlighting as an incredibly gifted, classically-trained pianist.

Yet still, here he be; tinkling the ivories and serenading Azzurri team-mate Andrea Pirlo with a lovely rendition of the Italian national anthem...

So elegant, so classy and, sadly, so fake. Yep, apparently the video is the creation of a Chinese marketing company. Boo.

That said, we're perfectly willing to suspend our belief for the time being. After all, a world in which Mario Balotelli plays classical piano beautiful enough to woo Andrea Pirlo is a world in which we'd like to live.
