TwoSet Violin are a pair of blokes from Brisbane who want to make classical music relevant to the modern generation through fun, humour and simplicity. Which explains the existence of Pachelbel's Canon in D performed on rubber chicken.

I'm not sure that there wasn't some electronic magic going on here, since, while you can tuna fish, you can't tune a chicken.

Yeah, I think there was a little fudging, Miss C, but it's great nonetheless.

Also, ಠ_ಠ

He almost certainly ran each track through Auto-Tune or a similar plugin, and I doubt they expect anyone to believe otherwise.

I don’t care how they did it. It was MAGNIFICENT. Peter Schickele, take note.

The rubber chicken + deadpan gag is probably inspired by popular youtuber Big Marvel

If you’re in a terrible hurry and really need to jump to the denouement, 1:42 or so is when the spirited chicken fingering begins.

Every time Johnny Wallflower makes an FPP, I really want to know what parts of the Internet he reads on a regular basis.

This video from them is one of my favourites. Equal parts depressing and impressive.

Indeed. I chuckled throughout, but when the 16th notes kicked in, I almost fell out of my chair.

And some where out there, in the dead of night, Rob Paravonian wakes up in a cold sweat, sitting bolt upright as he screams without even knowing why.
