BUTTHOVEN’S 5TH SYMPHONY: Burlesque Dancer Twerks to Beethoven


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.
