One Man, His Piano, and Apparently The Force

First, John Williams is amazing.  The theme song to Star Wars is a really great piece of music.  It's dramatic, powerful, memorable, and enjoyable.  Now, as a musician and a pianist, I can say that Star Wars would be impossible to play on a piano with all of the drama, power, and full sound this orchestral piece has.  Well, at least I would have said that until I saw this video:

OH. MY. GOODNESS.  This guy can play the piano, or at least the theme to Star Wars.  I actually didn't know this was possible for one person to play this well and full.  There is so much going on in this song, that I didn't think one person could pull it off, at least on a piano, all at the same time.  I guess I was wrong.
