  • Hello everyone, welcome to another episode of TwoSet Violin.

  • Today, we're reviewing a very crinnnnnngy...movie?

  • I mean, they call themselves like a short film,

  • - Ah. - by this guy which...

  • ...I'm sure some of you have heard before,

  • his name is Dhar Mann, cause he's DA MAN.

  • - Ha! - You know, just...preparing you guys for the cringe.

  • Yeah, we're starting the cringe now.

  • He decided to venture into the territory of music,

  • so being your Internet Violin Detectives,

  • we feel like we should watch this video.

  • What an opening!

  • Just one G major chord,

  • BAM! And then she stops playing.

  • And just air bows.

  • (onscreen) You're the guy who usually play's at Dharla's right?

  • - What the heck?! - Why?!

  • For those of you who are new to our channel,

  • let us introduce you to air bowing!

  • Where your bow is not touching the string!

  • It's literally touching air!

  • - It's...it's only two seconds, we gotta keep going. - Yeah, I know.

  • We can't judge it.

  • Can't judge it.

  • - Let me get my violin... - Yeah, get your...

  • That sound she did was a tuning sound, like...

  • ...short strokes, on the string.

  • But [in] the video she's going...

  • ...slow motion.

  • I thought we set this fact straight in 2019.

  • Dhar Mann! Clearly you need to watch our videos!

  • Why is there smoke? Where's the smoke coming from?

  • Her head's on fire!

  • She's representing all the actual musicians out there,

  • fuming like, "Oh my god."

  • How is that your competition?

  • She doesn't even play!

  • Like it's just air!

  • Also who wrote this script?

  • As a musician, I've never had someone come up to me,

  • and within five seconds go,

  • "You're really good."

  • "Oh, looks like you got competition."

  • What the...

  • - Are you trying to be nice, or you're trying to be an a**hole? - Yeah...

  • "Looks like you got competition."

  • Dude, the sound design is so off-putting.

  • [It] goes from super reverb,

  • which doesn't make sense because they're outdoors...

  • And then to...

  • Super dry and up-close.

  • No one says that.

  • We've busked a lot before when we were young,

  • never seen that happen.

  • Ooh...

  • I would rather be copyrighted, than have to act in that,

  • - that's just...oh my god. - Uh...

  • Yeah, I'd rather be copystriked.

  • Just...just take it!

  • OHH!!!

  • I thought there were so many things wrong,

  • and this guy just had to open his mouth,

  • and made it even worse!

  • I think this is the first time ever on our channel,

  • where the material is so bad, we are unable to roast

  • - 'cause our brains just melted from the stupidity, and also... - Dude, you just combusted.

  • 'Cause there's so many things to say...

  • Lookeven the Sacrilegious Boi made it easy for us.

  • - Dude, this makes Sacrilegious Boi look normal! - Yeah...!

  • It's like, one-year-olds fighting,

  • - and then the playing was like off-sync... - And then, um...

  • She was uh...

  • - Like she did some weird rhythm there...it was wrong. - She missed the notes, yeah.

  • What is with these smoke effects?

  • - (Brett) It's really... - It's really bothering, and...and his face looks so red.

  • I think the editor needs to know the difference

  • between anime and a real show.

  • Oh.

  • Even if his situation is worse,

  • doesn't mean he gets to kick her out!

  • Yeah!

  • She was there first, there's no law saying...

  • - ...you guys get the point. - Yeah.

  • Ohh, this...agh, this whole...agh!

  • (Brett) What I don't get is,

  • how did six million people watch it?

  • And look, look, #inspirational.

  • Ohhhhhhhhh!!!! That makes it even worse!!!

  • We're only two minutes in, and I already feel like I'm...

  • White flag, I've resigned, but let's keep going.

  • You know musicians have this conversation like this every day?

  • Yeah, me and Brett,

  • when we turn the video off we're like,

  • "Actually, I'm a better violinist."

  • Yeah, it's like, "Oh, I don't know, I'm..."

  • "[You're] half as good as me,

  • 'cause you can play half the notes."

  • Can I just say,

  • - she's got the freaking rubber band setup as well? - Sponge, yeah.

  • - It looks like she's played violin, right? - Yeah, she's definitely not a pro violinist,

  • - but she definitely is not full-faking either, - Yes.

  • like she can play a little bit,

  • but then they got a air bow in the beginning though,

  • - it was just so random! - Yeah, why...why?

  • "We need the guy to talk on camera,

  • but we can't be bothered figuring out

  • how to capture the audio, so..."

  • Of course the chef starts conducting now, like...

  • Shouldn't you be in the kitchen, like, working?

  • - Bro. - He needs to...he needs to get over himself.

  • I mean, this whole script needs to get over itself.

  • I feel sorry for the actors in this.

  • There's so many layers of wrongness

  • to this whole thing, as we've established.

  • - At what level do we want to talk about this, you know? - Yeah...!

  • No musician would ever threaten to

  • break another musician's instrument, that's already...

  • - That's going too far! Yeah! - ...cardinal sin, you don't understand musicians.

  • - Oohhhhhhhhh-hoo! - Whoaaaaaaaa!

  • - Fascinating! - This is how two animals interact with each other!

  • (both) Wow!

  • Yeah, it really explains his character, right?

  • You know what they say,

  • the emptier you are, the louder you are.

  • But to be fair, it's kind of cheating when you bring an amp.

  • Let us be very clear, as a classical musician,

  • we spend half our time learning how to not just play music,

  • but projecting the music.

  • On a violin, you have to play closer to the bridge sometimes,

  • you have to keep a bit more weight,

  • you have to draw the sound out more in order for it

  • HEY, BUT LOUDER IS BETTER!

  • Aw, s***.

  • Do you want my tips too?

  • Reminds me of those like people

  • that just get in an argument, and think by raising their voice

  • - their argument is more valid now. - Yeah, they're like,

  • "I'M TALKING LOUDER SO THEREFORE I'M MORE RIGHT!"

  • Oh, okay.

  • Wait, what just happened?

  • If you hold the instrument like that,

  • you still have to be careful!

  • We're not even gonna demonstrate it here, like...

  • She's holding it like this, right?

  • - (Eddy) And so this swung and hit it. - Yeah, it's normally the other way around, right?

  • - (Eddy) Normally it's like that. - Yes!

  • (Eddy) I recommend holding it like this.

  • - See how there's no touching? - (Eddy) Yeah.

  • And you can always use your right hand to

  • - grab the bow straight away. - Yeah, like that.

  • Pro tip!

  • This sounds like uh, America's Got Talent!

  • My sob story, ohh!

  • They're switching between like,

  • fighting to see who has more "talent",

  • to fighting to see who's louder,

  • and now to see whose situatelife situation's worse.

  • This is what we should do.

  • "Hey Dhar Mann, my life is so hard!

  • You should give us your subs and your views, man!"

  • "We need it more than you, man!"

  • Just...

  • We're kidding, by the way.

  • He's an Asian parent all of a sudden.

  • - Yeah! - "Back in my day..."

  • "I walked five hours to the rice farm!"

  • Actually, I already know where this is gonna go.

  • they're gonna decide, "Oh, why don't we play together?"

  • Make money, split the profits.

  • And then it's like, "Wow! Teamwork!"

  • We don't need 22 minutes to make this point.

  • Okay, so many things wrong,

  • but let me just say, you don't throw a nickel at someone.

  • Especially if they have an instrument.

  • Saying that, I did
