It's hard to tell what the Shirtless Violinist will come up with next. He may be either telling of his personal struggles (Exclusive: Interview With The Shirtless Violinist On His Shocking Cover Of Sia's 'Birds Set Free') or tapping into what's hot at the time (The Shirtless Violinist Gives Us "Beauty & The Beast – A Gay Fairy Tale" w/A Special Guest.) As I have said before, I'm not worried about what we see coming from him next for we know it's going to be good.
Being a Facebook friend of the Sexy and Shirtless Violinist has its perks. We get to see what's coming up next. So when this pic appeared on his FB page, we got a little excited! First of all we said WTF? Thriller? Teen Wolf? We had some help from the caption as it read:
If you're like 80% of the world, you're counting down to the season 7 premier of 'Game of Thrones in just a handful of days. What better subject for Matthew Olshefski to do for his newest video. Like the pic above, he had a little issue with the naming of the following video.
I almost considered calling this video “Gay Hunks of Thrones” until I discovered the name was already taken by an adult film! How about “House of Stark Naked”?? If you can think of a better name, leave it in the comments!
We know he's creative, but looks like he has writer's block when it comes to captions and titles. Let's watch, listen, and see if we can help him out, because he's clearly helping us out.
Hey Fiddle Fam! Are you excited about Game of Thrones season 7?! Well you should be because I just covered the theme song with my violin on top of a freezing cold snowy mountain wearing almost NOTHING at all!! If you think I'm crazy, you're right. And in honor of one of TV's greatest shows I also resurrected two of my all-time favorite characters. Will you be Team Snow or Team Drogo?! Let the Shirtless Violinist help you decide (Beware the White Walkers!!)
I have to tell you something: When I planned to shoot this music video in June I did NOT expect it to look and feel like December! But, as the saying goes, "Winter is coming…” so I guess I picked the right location (Mt Baker in Washington State, in case you were wondering!) Between freezing my nipples off and losing all feeling in my fingers. this video shoot officially goes down as the most excruciating one yet. All for the sake of art, I say!! (I'm just glad the feeling returned to my violin-fingers!)
If you are a Game of Thrones diehard super-fan, you will probably recognize the song I used at the beginning and end of this special arrangement. It's called "Light of the Seven" and it played during the closing moments of season 6. The full version is some of the best music I've heard on the show, so I hope my little homage does it justice. Everything you hear in this video was made with my violin – evening the drum beats!
And what music video shoot would be complete without a little calamity? From wardrobe malfunctions to harrowing drone crashes (RIP Mavic Pro!), this was one unforgettable day on the mountain. But you know what? It was totally worth it and I'd do it all over again!! – Shirtless Violinist
As always Matt, thanks for your talent and for your great team that helps you produce such great works of art. We also want to thank your work out routine for helping to craft such great visuals.
Here's some pics that might be good screen saver material. Hmmm, now there's a new marketing idea.
