    This. Is. Awesome. Intelligent, Real, and Comical. How can you beat that?

    He`s dissing Pachelbel (who I love) and I forgive him! It was great!

    I`ve already watched this about 3 times today, but on YouTube. It was on the front page today.

    Anyway, this guy is hilarious. I love Canon in D, and found this to be quite funny. Of course he could probably take any song in the key of D and make it sound like Canon, but that`s not the point. It was funny.

    I can sympathize, I used to play the double bass. And Canon in D is a pretty crappy piece as far as classical music goes.

    In my music class, we always have to play this one song which is actually written to the ground bass of Pachabel`s Canon. I was waiting for it to come up... Can`t remember its name though, but it goes "I`ll be here when you get there... if you ever get there" something like that. Any help?

    The key makes no difference (unless you have perfect pitch). It`s the chord progression he`s talking about...but yeah, it`s exaggerated: many, many songs share the same underlying chord progressions. A couple of the earlier songs he sang really did sound like total rip-offs, though.

    I hated that song. Violins don`t get to play until like 4 minutes of the Bass, then the Cellos, then the Viola intros. It`s like classical techno.

    Oh, the irony! We were skiing and this was on loop in the hotel. My sister mentioned how she and her boyfriend are so sick of this piece, how boring and cliched... and then I found this today. That is too funny.

    AMEN BRUTHA! PREACH IT! TO MUSIC MAJORS AROUND THE WORLD, UNITE! Hey, my bass part isn`t that great either. Bah, Humbug. Die Pachi.

    Just from this rant alone, this guy has become one of my all-time favorite comics. After spending eight years in orchestra I related to everything this guy said. I too had a viola part in the nutcracker suite...where I played the same eight notes...sixty times.

    "I would sit back and listen to the violins get lovely melodies, the violas would get lovely melodies, the second violins would get lovely melodies...which should just not happen." xD <3 So true.

    DiePSPolice: In respons to your earlier comment...yes, we did have a graduation ceremony, and EVERYONE got a certificate of some sort: Science, computers, right down to "Most Caring" which went to the kid with ADD. And they played that "Vitamin C" song everywhere; at the grad dance, the last day of school on a CD player and they even gave us a montage with that song as the background music. By the beginning of summer vacation the thing was permenantlly in my head and so when I saw this thing twp years later it gave me a WTF moment and brought back painful memories.

    I used to take violin and I remember my music teacher said that he hated it because it`s used so often. Playing the violin part was wonderfully fun though...it`s just not that great hearing it after those first fifty times. Anyhow, I adore this video. It`s brilliant.
