Steinar Gregertsen says it's Hannes Coetzee of South Africa.

I can't get it to load.

Is this the clip of the guy sitting on a box using his hands to play the guitar accompaniment, and a spoon in his mouth to play the slide melody on the same guitar? It was posted on the IGS forum a week or so ago.

If it is, you're right Stumbles, that is one of the coolest things I've seen. I feel sure that I'll bee giving that a try...
