Standing where Tom Hanks stood in the 1980s, Nick Jonas played his hit song "Jealous" on FAO Schwarz's foot-operated piano, the same one Hanks popularized in the film Big.
Hanks, as Josh Baskin in the 1988 classic, memorably performed "Chopsticks" and "Heart and Soul" on the ground-level electric piano.
Watch Jonas channel Hanks in this video, below, which he posted on Facebook:
Big is about 12-year-old Josh, whose wish to be an adult is magically granted overnight. Josh's piano antics alongside store owner Mr. MacMillan earned Josh a promotion.

And for old time's sake, here's the film's trailer from the '80s:
