|OH. MY. GOD.|
Twerking is, for the most part, something that should be left to people with rhythm and an ass that deserves to be twerked. But no, flat-cheeked white people everywhere have taken this dance move and destroyed it for the entire world (thank you Miley Cyrus) until its very existence has become nothing but a footnote in the pop culture annual of 2012.
But sometimes someone comes along and redeems the act of butt-muscle manipulation by making it completely their own. An originator in the field of mass imitation so to speak, and that person is Michelle L’amour, a burlesque dancer from Chicago, who has somehow turned all the rump-shaking into a high-brow affair by twerking the hell out of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.
With nothing more than a piano bench and a teeny-tiny bow tie thong, Ms. L’amour has managed to elevate the once-upsetting YouTube barrage of flailing ass-cheeks into a beautiful ode to classical music, and for that, I thank her.
So please, put on your best suit and tie, grab a martini and watch as Beethoven’s 5th brings the sexy back.
Video after the break.
