High School Student Claims Piano in Biscayne Bay and Provides Video

Yeager's story turned out to be about as real as this photo.
It appears filmmaker Billy Yeager's outlandish claims inspired the actual piano man to step forward. The Miami Herald reported last night that Nicholas Harrington, a 16-year-old from MAST Academy, placed the grand piano on the sandbar as a project to build up his art portfolio. He provided video of the piano being hoisted onto a 22-foot fishing boat, while Yeager still can't seem to find his images from his alleged adventure.

The teenager told Channel 10 News: "I liked the idea of an anonymous piano out there, no explanation to it. But another person came out with the idea that they did it. That's just not right. But what people would do for publicity, who knows."

Yeager's claims managed to catch the attention of CNN's American Morning, at least according to a transcript of what aired at 2 a.m. And this is not the first time the angry hippie, as some of you are calling him, has appeared in the New Times. In 1993, music writer Greg Baker wrote a glowing review of Yeager's song "Little Puggy." In 1997, Broward New Times ran a story about his film, Jimmy's Story, and described it as Wayne's World meets Spinal Tap.

Still, it seem most Miamians preferred it when the piano was unexplained. Angry hippies decrying Miami as shallow or teenagers hoping to get a leg up in their college applications drain a little magic out of the spectacle. Just like in any good marriage, it's good to keep a little mystery. So let's all turn our attention to a South Florida legend that will always go unclaimed: the Skunk Ape.

Billy Yeager is a plagiaristic pathalogical liar. He dyed himself black and told everyone in the UK he was Jimi Hendrix's son. He makes vacant films and makes believe they are banned somewhere by posting that on Youtoobe. I just started reading about this whack job with the Hendrix thing but it appears he spreads lies everywhere he goes. Next thing, I predict, he will be born again, go on the Funamental Baptist circuit as an Evangelist, telling everyone he was a 99 degree mason, a wiccan high priest, and how he turned his life around for 2000 bucks a show.

That Yeager guy is a douche. I hope that no more press comes of his stupid shit wannabe movies. He's a loser that has to use anything possible to bring attention to his shitty life. How about working harder and doing something that people like, you washed up low-rate!?

So will the Harringtons be fined for illegal dumping in the bay?

God the Yeager's are such morons without a creative bone in their bodies. Well if they can't come up with something interesting on their own, let's just steal someone else's work.

I'm sure at ANY moment the Yeager's are going to have one of their children caught up in a balloon flying high over Miami.
