Slovakian violist Lukas Kmit riffs off concert-interrupting Nokia ringtone [VIDEO]
The video below has been making the rounds (we picked it up off Daily Picks and Flicks), showing Slovakian violist Lukas Kmit performing at a Jewish Orthodox synagogue in Presov.
Kmit was playing a beautiful piece on his viola when the all-too-familiar Nokia ringtone interrupted his recital. The musician paused for a while, smiled and then continued his performance with an improvised version of the world’s most famous ringtone, to the delight of an audience who broke into applause.
At first, I thought the video was a lame attempt at viral marketing by the Finnish telecommunications giant. But according to HuffPost, the incident was real. The clip was actually posted in July last year, but just now the netizens seem to have noticed.
