Put a Coin in the Busker's Hat and an Orchestra Will Appear

(Video Link)

“Best Coin Ever Spent” shows a tuxedo-wearing busker at the center of a Spanish town. The bass violin player patiently waits for someone to put a coin in his top hat. A little girl does so, so he begins playing. Then a cellist joins him. Then an oboist.

Instrument by instrument, an orchestra and choir form from performers emerging from nearby buildings. They play Friedrich Schiller’s “Ode to Joy,” a hymn set to the last movement of Ludwig van Beethoven’s final symphony, Symphony #9.

This glorious video is a commercial for Banco Sabadell, a Spanish banking corporation.
