Pachelbel's Canon in BBoy-major

Remember, last year, a Korean Zero-Nine commercial that created a sensation? It was a fantastic collaborative performance by a DJ, a Beatboxer and two breakdancers from the Last4One crew, with Pachelbel's Canon in D-major played on kotos (or rather on Kayageum)? R'member? R'member? That was awesome...

The commercial was uploaded everywhere: YouTube, Google, Netscape videos, etc. and embedded in millions of blogs around the world (including yours truly's blog). Here it is again, because it's such a great performance:



Well, there are two other versions of that performance, which I am happy to post here, for your viewing pleasure.

Version 2:




Version 3:




For those of you who are only interested in the Kayageum players and not in the BBoys:




And finally, the inevitable: «The Making Of...» video



Consider this as your New Year li xi.

Mouais bref.. la performance des breakeurs est a classe dans le haut de gamme, mais la musique Kayageum (l'accord est pfff... bref) +beat+ scratche rien de bien original.

D'ailleurs a noter que compte tenu de la simplicite de l'accord de kayageum, ils aurraient pu se passer des belles demoiselles vetuent d'un habit traditionnel pour l'occase, d'ailleurs je ne serais pas etonner que cela a ete fait a l'origine sur une boite a zic, et ils ont eu la bonne idee de ramener les musiciennes (et non musiciens) pour faire : Ok se la raconte Harlem, mais on est koreens tout de meme

Et pour le beatbox... hrrr il y a mieux.

Y en a qui sont difficile, mais difficile!!!
Tout le monde ne peut pas se rendre à Dong Son pour faire un reportage, mon vieux...

Mais j'avoue que le Canon de Pachelbel est aussi ubiquiste que Paris Hilton...
