Musician Tony Ann recreated popular ringtones—like the iPhone’s Marimba and T-Mobile’s jingle—with a piano. Though hearing other people’s ringtones in real life is totally annoying, listening to their piano arrangements is quite nice (in a “hey, I know this tune but can’t quite figure out why I know it” sort of way).

A fatherless tyke leaves the farm for a space adventure? Nope, never heard of that before. See just how alarmingly similar Kirk and Luke really are. Plus Spider-Man versus Piano Cat. The winner? You.
