The Touchtone Genius

[Media: Video]

My friend Marc pointed out the website Songs to Wear Pants to. The author of this site takes donated requests for songs, he'll sing about anything and will take any sized donation, within reason. One of the most popular requests was the Touchtone Genius. This was popular enough that it turned into a fully featured animation. Here's the original request:
Let's imagine that somewhere in a hotel room there's a really talented and really bored composer who has mastered the art of accompanying himself with dial tones while calling random people in their homes. He especially enjoys leaving 2 minutes operas on other people answering machine / service.

So in otherwords, this is a song done using only the keys on a phone. Pretty amazing no?
