Wait, This Beatboxing Cellist Is Actually Pretty Incredible

So when I got this link, I thought, "Oh great, another dumb YouTube stunt." Then cellist Kevin Osula started playing—elegantly, precisely, stylishly—and I said, oh great, another classical nerd trying to show off how "cool" he is by spicing his playing up with some lame beatboxing. And then he started beatboxing, and you know what? You win, YouTube. This guy's great; I'm the asshole.
Thanks, Shelley!

Daniel, how could you NOT know about Kevin? He cello/beatboxed on PBS ferchrissakes. I'm sad that he only spent one year in the YSO, but just as happy that he's doing so well. It was amazing to hear him open the YSO's Halloween Show last year. Plus, he's genuine and completely humble about his craft.
