I can't find iron clad proof, but a poster on reddit claims that Bruce's stack of pianos was placed there by the Danny Hughes Beat It Music shop in Blackrock, Louth, Ireland as part of a charity event supporting Cross Cause charity. There's apparently a tall post behind the pianos holding them all straight. I did find another picture at the same location where a tall pole in the same spot had been outfitted with a viking sail during a film festival, and there's more stuff on the internet of artsy burning man style events located at the same place.

Edit: Conor Hughes is behind it, and here he is, perched on top of the pianos.

Edit again: I found a newspaper article teasing about his then upcoming piano stunt. https://www.independent.ie/regionals...-36418130.html

Are pianos not straight? Why would they need a pole?

Thanks for the added info, Glatt. It's all still a WTF thing, tho.

Looks like the pianos were stacked in a bog-like place, and the pole was used for stabilization.

Given the results of Glatt's research, I think the bigger question is, "Why the hell is a bog the location for promotions, events, and avant garde art installations?"



People are weird.


ETA: Sorry for the earlier misappropriation, Glatt!

Good work glatt.

Stacking those pianos on a tidal mud flat? You need a pole.

It would take a pretty good size crane to stack them all up that high.
I'd love to be watching from a safe distance when it blows over.
Did y'all know the average piano frame is holding around 20 *tons* of pressure?

Maybe back before man made materials different color dyes could be faintly detected.

You guys are totally overthinking this.

How good does she have to be to be better than 50-50? It's a black and white picture for crying out loud.
