Video! Two Badass Cello Players Cover “Smooth Criminal”

This is pretty cool, given that the guys playing the cellos seem to think that their mean faces somehow enhance their playing. Playing “Smooth Criminal” on the cello, I’m sure, makes you feel badass, but when you do your mean face it really prevents me from enjoying as much as I could. I almost got into it, but then I see this dude going in, full-force, with the mean face. It’s like trying to be intimidating and tap dancing at the same time. The cello spin though? That’s badass.

For good measure, let me just throw out Natalie Portman’s laugh, looped. I shared on Twitter but really it deserves to be posted. It’s probably just going to make some of you freaks like her even more.
