Darth Vader vs. the Jedi Cellos

Ok, ok, I admit it. I’m a complete Star Wars geek.  But even if you don’t know Chewbacca from Midi-Chlorian, this epic video by The Piano Guys is not to be missed.  You won’t be disappointed.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long ago in a galaxy far, far away…

We bring you CELLO WARS! A result of 6 months of production…our most ambitious undertaking by far! Why Star Wars Cello? Because of our unending admiration of George Lucas, John Williams, and the most EPIC movies and film score ever created. The idea originated when Tel Stewart was editing THE CELLO SONG. As a joke he decided to add light sabers to Steven Sharp Nelson’s bow during the outtakes. Fans cried out for more. Al van der Beek and Steven Sharp Nelson storyboarded the song and the video concept while they were scouting locations for MOONLIGHT. But it was Steven Sharp Nelson’s son Eli (6) that was the true inspiration for the project — his enthusiasm for Star Wars, light sabers, and watching his daddy wield one while playing cello fueled the project continually.

We announced CELLO WARS on September 19, 2011 thinking we’d be able to deliver on our promise within a few weeks. We had NO IDEA. 70 days later, more than 7,000 frames, 72 audio tracks, 24 hours of filming through the night in front of a green screen, the most props and costumes we’ve ever used, several broken bows and strings, and over 1,000 hours of editing and rendering — we felt like we had taken on the entire EMPIRE!

While there are hundreds of thousands of great performances captured on tape, the music videos featured on TSM blog feature musical creations that are unusual, innovative, humorous, or otherwise purple. This collection is fun–perhaps a stress reliever or diversion at a late night bash! It also provides you with an opportunity to discover new and creative musicians.
