If you thought the title for most outrageous use of auto-tune in a 2011 cover version of Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas had gone to the aforementioned Canadian pop puppy, think again.
I present the debut video for one of my favourite moonlighting projects - a group of seven singing cello players known as The Massive Violins. My housemate made this for us on a budget of £30 (which covered four German hot dogs and six rides on the carousel) and I hope you don't take it any more seriously than we take ourselves - in particular the "finale", which was an improvised joke in the studio that somehow made it into the final version...
Oh, and if anyone happens to be in London on Thursday, please come to our gig as shamelessly advertised beneath the clip.
