What happens if your guest of honour is Horatio Gutierrez and he can't make it to The Tonight Show? If you're Johnny Carson, you ask members of the audience if they know how to play the piano -- and if they do -- you get them to play on stage.

This video was brought to light via Reddit's Crowd Pulled on Stage and features David Tolley performing for the first time.

Johnny Carson's concert pianist for the night couldn't make it into the studio, so he asks the audience if anyone plays piano. Awesomeness ensues.
