Cello Wars!

Posted at 1:11 PM on December 6, 2011 by William Johnston

What do you get when you combine Star Wars, electric celli, and an accordion? This video by the Piano Guys.

Quite a fun arrangement of the main themes from the Star Wars double trilogy. They also have other arrangements as well as some original works.

(waves hand) "These aren't the violas you're looking for." Post your jokes in the comments.
