How fast does the Internet work? Just ask the two Croatian musicians Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser.

They uploaded a video they made for their rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” onto YouTube and within weeks it had over three million views and a call from Sir Elton John himself. “We always wanted to do something crazy, and new,” said Sulic in an interview with C Music TV, “make cello popular among the younger generation.” The boys just released their first, self-titled, album and are currently on a world tour with Elton’s band, making a number of TV appearances along the way.
