If you like Star Wars, we've got a video for you. It's a battle between a Jedi and a Sith. And if you like music, we've got a video for you. It's a duel between musicians. Turns out they just happen to be the same video.

YouTubers ThePianoGuys, who create gorgeous, cinematic videos of their music, took their skills to a whole new level to create "Cello Wars: The Phantom Cellist." This video, complete with costumes and special effects, shows off the mad skills of musician Steven Sharp Nelson (in a dual role as both Jedi and Sith), as well as his filmmaker pals.

The plot is simple: Two practitioners of opposite sides of the Force meet and battle. But then ... let's just say that Darth Vader wants to play.

Don't forget to stay for the stinger, after the video. We're laughing it up right now.
