It’s Pachelbel’s Canon, played by four rubber chickens – and it’s the greatest classical music video to grace the Internet this week.
Eddy, a violinist from YouTube duo TwoSet Violin, has created a multitracked version of Johann Pachelbel’s beautifully romantic wedding classic – his Canon in D – with the assistance of four rubber chickens.
The most impressive thing is that he can actually play the chickens in tune. There’s also a particularly beautiful, squawk-filled moment around 1:51, when the final two lines of semiquavers join together.
Oh, and the title of the piece? Pachelbel’s Canon in C(hicken).
