This is allegedly a video of John Cena playing “Where Is My Mind?” on piano

To celebrate hitting the 900,000-subscriber mark, the YouTube channel for the WWE mainstays and reality TV stars The Bella Twins uploaded what is, allegedly, a video of wrestling superstar and increasingly hot Hollywood commodity John Cena, Nikki Bella’s fiance, sitting at a piano in a gorgeous room and playing a somber cover of The Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind.” It’s an almost hilariously tranquil and stuffy black-and-white video, starting with an artsy close up of a fireplace and Cena, in a full tuxedo, adjusting his bowtie before walking in slow motion through this ornately decorated home and sitting down to tickle the ivories with his giant meat-man fingers, a phenomenon that has only been, allegedly, captured on film once before.


Actually, these are all things we assume would happen in the video if one could, in fact, see John Cena, but as we all know, you can’t see John Cena. This supposed footage of the 16-time WWE champ turning out his own version of the Pixies’ best known track amounts to little more than an eerie video of a piano playing itself. It’s perfect for Halloween, but not exactly the conclusive proof of this invisible Renaissance man’s musical skills that we were hoping for.
