This is a video of a smug-looking guy playing Iron Maiden's "The Trooper" on his hands. And there's more.

Truth in advertising, at least. This guy doesn't have that faraway, catatonic stare that the other manualist had during his, um, routines.

Definitely not the best of the internet.

This was one of the best questions on that YouTube/CNN debate thing the other night.

That is a unique talent. The best I can do is make tuneless fart noises and squirt water at a high velocity.

Also, that man owns the ugliest couch I have ever seen.

I dig his "optimized for one" speaker placement.

What do you think he's so smug about?

This guy's got nothing on The Four Squeezins.

The Trooper? I'm sorry but the cover version you want is here.

I have a soft spot for Steve Stripling. Not rock and roll but I like it.

I feel this is a tribute worthy of Iron Maiden.

Maybe if he activated his Star Power he could get more than 3 stars on this.

Ironmouth -- that rawks! The bass player has all his rock moves down, and the little girl could totally kick Bruce Dickinson's ass.

It's like Meg's "grow your fingernails" superpower.

I'd like to see a video of "Aces High" but with only cockpit footage of Bruce Dickinson flying a 757 in a calm, businesslike manner, and maybe chatting up a flight attendant.

With great power comes great responsibility.
