Beethoven's 5th Twerk

I don't twerk. In fact, I don't dance at all. I have no rhythm and cannot bring myself to subject other humans who may be around me to such a horrific spectacle. When twerking entered the mainstream after America's overreaction to Miley Cyrus' publicity grab on "Music" Television I pulled the old guy card and said,(in my best Grandpa Simpson voice) "I remember when that was called tripping balls!"

But the performance below has taken twerking to the cultured level of the great composers. If the lovely maidens of the 18th century started shaking their giant dress hoops to Beethoven's 5th Symphony, I bet his following symphonies would've been pretty damn funky.

Yes, I have the mind of a 12 year old boy.
