Star Wars Fan Plays Imperial March Song Using A Coffee Stirrer
Sometimes the wackiest videos end up going viral. Working in an office can be a dull and boring, often leaving employees with time to creatively pass time. One bored Star Wars fan found the perfect project to keep his time occupied… or did he… ?
Footage, which is believed to have been filmed in an office in Russia, shows musician Deyta Meyra complete a perfect rendition of the Imperial March using just a coffee stirrer. After making world wide headlines with the famed video being turned into gif’s, memes, and more, this Star Wars fan was praised for perfectly plucking the Imperial March tune.
Musician Deyta Meyra holds the stick over the side of the desk with one hand and plucks out a rendition of the famous tune with the other. Some YouTubers were impressed and praised the man for his talent, but the big question is.. Did he really do it?
As with anything on the internet, the eagle-eyed public are quick to call out the authenticity of the video. One user pointed out that he gets very close to the play button on his computer or mini recorder before starting his coffee stirrer trick. Here’s some of the notable comments:
“Maaan this was pretty cool until i saw him just hit spacebar to play the song. Some of those movements didn’t make sense”. -Gary K-
“I noticed a few times when the pitch went down but he moved the stirrer toward the table, shortening the length of the vibrating portion of the stirrer. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the physics of sound, a shorter/thinner vibrating mechanism will produce a higher pitch. This is a cool idea, but this isn’t real”. -Tom W-
“It’s faked. The notes don’t match up.. look at the last two notes. The motion he used on the stirrer would have produced a higher pitch on the last note vs the penultimate note, yet that’s not the sound we hear”. -Dirk H-
“Hate the musician in me that can see this isn’t real! Easily to see at the end with the last 6 notes. Should be low high medium but the way he does the stirring it’s going low medium high”. -Alex D-
Doubtful YouTubers have even made their own comedic videos such as this one of a man playing Beethoven’s Fur Elise on a coffee cup!
The viral video famed musician posted on social media saying “In the hands of a professional any object can become the epitome of art”.
In the end, this is what Youtube was made for. So, we have to ask the big question… Do you think the viral video is real or fake? Does it even matter? Either way we think it’s pretty darn cool! Let us know in the comments below or on our socials!
