After watching this 'Cello Wars' YouTube video, I was overcome by catharsis. Humor aside, there were genuine moments of tension in this parody, which keep viewers on the edge of their seats. The epic renditions of John Williams' notorious Star Wars themes only upped the stakes even though the entire video consisted of musicians pretend fighting while playing their respective instruments.
Cello Wars is the work of The Piano Guys, a group of talented musicians who make parody cover videos that mimic popular songs, but arranges the music at virtuosic levels. Cello Wars is their most ambitious video to date, harnessing the green screen, as well as other snazzy special effects tools.
The video ends humorously with the cellist Jedi mind tricking viewers into liking and spreading the video. Looks like it worked on me!
