Outrage: Korean Dancers Twerking to Classical Music: Video! Abomination!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"In an effort possibly designed to get classical music to appeal to a younger audience, a Belgian classical music festival has released a YouTube video of a Korean dance troupe twerking in time to Czech composer Antonin Dvořák`s Symphony No. 9 in E Minor."



Twerking and raunchy rap music go together like eggs and bacon or hamburger and fries, but twerking and classical music?

Classical music and ballet dancers, now that`s a match made in heaven.

The juxtaposition of classical music and a Korean dance troupe twerking is enough to cause cognitive dissonance or a really gnarly headache.

Couldn`t the Belgian classical music festival have contacted a hip hop dance troupe from Harlem? To twerk it`s essential that you pack much back, I`m sorry but the average Asian rear end is as flat as an ironing board.

Help me out here Sir Mix-a-Lot:

I`m tired of magazines
Sayin` flat butts are the thing
Take the average black man and ask him that
She gotta pack much back
So, fellas! (Yeah!) Fellas! (Yeah!)
Has your girlfriend got the butt? (Hell yeah!)
Tell `em to shake it! (Shake it!) Shake it! (Shake it!)
Shake that healthy butt!
Baby got back!

Classical music lovers are going to wax apoplectic watching this video, and twerking fans are going to go postal on those flat-butt Korean dancers.
